kill the bill? I prefer $1 coins and would be happy to see the $1 paper bill move on. Canada has finally made the leap, although for years they have had the loonie and tooney as sucessful $1 and $2 coins. Here in the US we were never able to make the sucessful jump to a $2 paper bill let alone a working coin. Maybe we can twice follow Canada's lead and get rid of the penny too. At least now I know my change from the store will eventually no longer have Canadian pennies. ;-)

The Droid is gone. It started to have charging issues. It would go from full charge to none in minutes and then re-charge in a few minutes. I couldn't miss a business call because my phone was acting goofy so I've left the world of Droid and joined the Apple collective. I never developed a warm, happy feeling for the Droid. I was thrilled to have it and a weather app with me when it started snowing on business trips, and I still needed to pass over Seven Mountains. I was dismayed whenever it sat on the passenger seat during those trips and began randomly calling contacts. I don't think any of those people really wanted to hear me singing. I never liked the way it handled messaging either. So far, the Apple has been an improvement. It has yet to call someone while I am driving. Siri takes some getting used to and doesn't work as well as the tv ads. The touch screen is a lot easier for me to use than Droid's. I'm one of the increasing few who still believe a smart phone is neither smart nor a phone, but I have hopes the iPhone will start to change my opinion. Now if I can just get it connected to my business e-mail. That would make my life better.
