The Classifieds area of the Two Way Radio Directory recently got a major upgrade. Now based on the same reliable feature filled software platform that is used for the directory area, it adds much capability. Check it out.
While my wife and my youngest daughter keep pointing out all the wonderful features of their iPhones, I still prefer my HTC Wizard (a.k.a. T mobile MDA), A few months ago I decided I needed the services of a stock broker that could provide me advanced features and services not available from Scottrade. I am keeping my Scottrade account for basic stock trades because I like some of their news and other features. However, for options and futures I opened an account with Thinkorswim. I highly recommend them. Now, back to my phone. Thinkorswim has an awesome desktop trading platform. They also have a very nice trading platform called Think Anywhere for Windows Mobile devices. It is fantastic. It has been very reliable, works fine on WiFi or GSM, and has excellent real time charts and quotes.
In a previous article I gave a “Hats Off” to the genius of the Nextel folks. Now we see that their biggest spark of genius was probably selling the thing to Sprint. Apparently the geniuses saw the handwriting on the wall, but the Sprint folks bought the best sales job Nextel ever did. Now Sprint is in a tail spin with their sole sourced iDEN system as is the provider of iDEN, Motorola. Two formerly good companies that were derailed by the egos of their leadership.
