cell phones galore

Just read this on the Sprint / Nextel merger:

The combination, which still requires approval from the FCC and the Justice Department forms a company with more than 40 million wireless customers and $40 billion in annual revenue.

So, on average, the company gets a thousand dollars a year from each customer?! I better go check my Sprint PCS bill again. Yep. Math sure is dangerous. If you spend about $83 dollars a month, you are forking over a thousand a year for that cell phone. Maybe pay phones weren't such a bad idea after all.
