My business DroidX smartphone, unlimited data/1300 voice, with all the
taxes and gotcha's, is consistently +/- $123/month (which includes the
mandatory $20/month unlimited data plan).
My iPad2 (actually assigned a 10 digit phone number by Verizon for 3G
cellular data) is $20/month for 1 GB data; no contract, can be turned
off or on at will and you can pony up for more in advance as needed (an
extra $15/month gets you 3GB data, etc.)
With the iPad, I keep the Cellular turned off 98% of the time. I average
about 200MB of 3G cellular data through the device each month, well
below the 1GB max. (there is a cellular data usage monitor built-into
the iPad). Use the iPad with WiFi whenever possible, either my own at
home/office, or a clients location, and 3G only as needed when no WiFi
is available (in a large urban area some type of WiFi is available
almost everywhere you go these days ... hell, my phone sees available
networks when stopped at red lights/traffic.)
uVerse high speed internet for home/home office is $65/month for
unlimited/18GB download speed, with built-in wireless router in the RG.
Wife and daughter use their "WiFi only" iPads at home and work ... they
are both big NetFlix fans and watch movies/videos on their iPads almost
nightly over the uVerse WiFi at home at no extra data cost ... so far).
No exceptions, yet ....for "data" which is the basis of the discussion.
However, that could be short lived as ATT kicks in their tiered data
plans. Corporate greed, or looking forward to FTTP infrastructure?
With their current profits, at present there is NO justification for
doing so with FTTN VDSL except to condition a gullible public to pay more.
Nintendo has a 3D version of their DS game machine on the market right now.
Yes, I know you meant 3D as in computing power but it takes a fair amount
for the games. MOF, PC power has been driven by the games market for the
past few years. Intel is rightfully concerned about the Killer App that will
need what they can build.
The Google books is a great resource for what every you are researching.
If you are working in genealogy, there are many County and State
histories in their collections. These books have many biographies of
the citizens of each county.
