Dang - I know Pogue said it can't be used as a modem to allow a laptop to get on the 'net, but seriously? I almost don't believe it. It's the last remaining obstacle I face in my quest to get an iPhone in this house. He has a Samsung A-900 with Sprint EVDO data that can be plugged into his laptop in airports, hotels, etc. I'm able to use it as a passenger in the car on long trips and it's NICE to have. Seriously though, technically speaking, does anyone else find the Pogue statement incredulous? I love the guy, but I guess I'm in sort of a denial about it. Would anyone be able to tell me how this works technically? Software update? Really, as long as one has the right cord, I don't see why it wouldn't act as a modem for a laptop. Right? Or maybe the wireless at least?
