1998 Cell Phone Holster the Best Choice for Modern PPC/Phone Hybrids?

File this in the "wacky but true" folder...

After months of scouring both web and retail stores, evaluating and trying tons of different products, I finally found a suitable holster for my HTC Hermes (aka AT&T 8525).

I like a lot of things about the iPhone, but the one thing it does I'm totally jealous of is how it handles mobile web browsing.

As a parent, I have to tell you that this is an awesome feature. Its one of those that seems so obvious that you wonder what took them so long to come up with it, especially as it doesn't require any unique technology, just some innovative thought.

Matt's Tech Law #1 - Who Calls Back When a Call is Lost?

If cell phones really were as reliable as Verizon and AT&T said so, then no one would ever drop a call for seemingly no reason. I've got plenty of bars AT&T!

What's funny is that the worst part of dropping a call isn't the fact the call is lost, it's the fact that no one is really sure who's supposed to call back. So what happens? Here's the typical lost call scenario:
