Okay, the Droid is nifty.

Okay, my new "Droid" from Motorola (and Google), with Verizon, is going to be much faster than the Blackberry, whose contract ended recently.  It had seemed for about a year that everyone's access on the Metro or in discos was much faster than mine. The Blackberry had been touted to be the same model as the president's.

The directions lose a little to be desired.  If you're unfamiliar with how they work, it's a bit of a mystery. You have to figure out that you're supposed to punch out the SIM card, and then the instructions about the "slot" make sense (I had to look for a YouTube on how to install it).  No instructions discuss the pull out keyboard.

One other news item.  Aflac was advertising heavily for insurance agents on ABC yesterday.  This has always sounded like a difficult field.  The television ad asked "Do you like to help people?"   That's a turn from the reputation that the field has gotten in our individualistic society for hucksterism.
