iPhone comes to Verizon

In case you haven't already heard, the iPhone is officially coming to the Verizon network February 10th (available for pre-order to existing Verizon customers February 3rd)—this is a big Yay for a lot of AT&T customers who are dissatisfied with their existing provider. Jon Stewart's take on it last night was pretty spot-on: "For the past three or four years, those of us in the iPhone community have sacrificed one thing for the ability to carry around every photo we’ve ever take or every song we’ve ever listened to or a compass," he said. "We have sacrificed the ability to make phone calls." [Mashable]
