There's an app for that?

The mighty iPhone. To some a symbol of pure excess. To others, an invaluable tool for everyday life. To others still, its a new way to make rude noises.

Apple, famously, discourages people from hacking the iPhone - as a way to us it with a different wireless provider than AT&T or as a means to write your own apps. They have all the apps you would ever need, they say, in many a recent commercial. View an MRI - there's an app for that. Drink a virtual brew - yep, there's an app for that. Digital flatulence - they got you covered!

This video is from some people at the Houston Chronicle. It made me laugh.

Do you use an iPhoney or a CrackBerry? Or are you more simple than that?

Crackberry -- but work *makes* me use it! Honest!

I'm more simple than all that. I was dragged kicking and screaming into cell phone ownership. Work needed me to be on-call, so I had no choice but to get one (a very basic cell phone, that is).

Then, when my wife and I were in different locations, one phone wasn't cutting it, so we got her one too. I do like her having one in the car with her, in case of an emergency.

About once a month, the cell phone is actually useful. I can use it like a walkie-talkie when I can't find my wife in Sam's Club or Target.

Crackberry. Have only had it since January (work also made me get it), but I like it.
