The Verizon Hub (aka touchscreen VOiP phone) went on sale yesterday.  To grab one you’ll need to sign a 2-year contract and drop $200.  This is the first time I’ve seen a contract required for a non cell phone device.  Well, looks like Verizon has found a way to curb land line attrition.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
