    Thanks to those who answered the question about the Micro Sims.

    Actually, I have a pretty decent experience surfing the web on EDGE on my iPhone. It is better than AT&T's Network of Misery here, for sure. I use it all the time to check mail and do facebook and it is fine for that. If I want to watch a video, it is better to use WiFi, and unless I am in my car, I pretty much always have access to that, it seems.

    I would rather spend $600 then use Windows for free.

    Your hate of windows is funny, but not substantiated in any reality bun Windows 7 is awesome, even many Mac people will agree, I would broaden your horizons and think outside the fruit, after all, isn't that what Apple preaches? Remember, this is a company we're talking about, not God, Apple has made and continues to make mistakes, so does Microsoft, aka Bob, Windows ME.

    You hate anything Apple just as much, Mike. Have you used a Mac recently? Fair is fair! I have used Windows, many times--though I would love to have all those minutes of my life back. As I said, I have Dell laptop at work (running XP, as it is a company computer, so I dont get a say in it) and it is horrible. It is slow (it takes forever to boot up), it is not intuitive. It is hard to get work done on it, as it decides it will just update Windows randomly, and you cannot make it stop--then I get to wait 15 minutes to boot up again! It has gotten viruses from the network (someone else, not me, I swear!). It is just lame.

    And it is fugly, both the case and the interface (hello, 1995 is calling and wants its graphics back). Apps crash with great regularity--I dont know the last time my iMac crashed because it might be never. The Dell runs like crap--because it is crap. My 24" iMac is a thing of swift and elegant beauty and when one is used to driving a Mercedes, it sucks to drive a Yugo. It also sucks to use that craptastic and clunky Microsoft mouse instead of my way cool Magic Mouse. I feel like I am shoving a 5 lb brick around on the desk, instead of just flicking my finger across a smooth surface.

    So there you have it.

    It's a nice thought. However, when I found out that the iPod touch had Personal Area Networking (PAN) bluetooth support, I tried to tether it off of my TM-506.

    The problem is, the iPod touch doesn't have the necessary "driver" available for such a use. (As does a Windows machine.)

    Apparently PAN is in the touch so that two touches could connect via bluetooth in multiplayer games.

    Maybe someone could make an app which would use the PAN to tether. But I'm not holding my breath.

    And if Apple follows the same pattern, the iPad won't be able to tether via Bluetooth either.

    So much for that idea. I guess I could pick up a Windows Mobile or Android based phone to do a WiFi tether to it.

    Then you might as well carry a good netbook or an ultra-portable laptop.

    In all it just smells to me of an annoying way to try to stop you putting your phone's SIM into it when you want to surf so you are pushed into getting an additional line of service. Expect to see a flood of SIM cutters and adapters (so you can put it back in a regular SIM slot) on ebay...

    While microSIMs are backward compatible with miniSIMs (current standard) I thought I read they have additional features and that could make a cut down SIM incompatible despite the same contact and voltage etc.

    I know it is not 3G compatible with T-Mobile.

    Otherwise, I will have to use the beastly AT&T data network and the AT&T card.
    I wonder what's the deal with Micro SIMs in the iPad. It's way bigger than any cellphone made today. It's got room inside for 100 regular SIMs. The thing should be using MaxiSIMs instead.

    SIM cutters already exist. Dual SIM card adapters required a cut-down SIM.

    Harder for people to use it with other plans...AT&Trash's way to stifle GSM
