I recently traveled to Canada and had to use use my iphone maps to get driving directions. I received an AT&T bill for 26,765 kb of usage  for $401.50 (Roaming $0.015 per kb). I really don't understand how using your phone for a few minutes would cost so much and how the carrier can get away with it. Be forewarned about this and you might want to tell your carrier to block all international usage just so that this won't happen to you. I've been searching the web and came up with other horror stories.

Check out Belkin FSL009 Network USB on my Amazon links. I got this product yesterday. I plug it into my network router and I connected multiple external hard drives to it. All you have to do is install the software on each PC that need to access the device and you can easily connect/disconnect the device which can be viewed on one PC at a time. You can connect up to 5 usb devices including printers, scanners, and media devices.

I was in line at the AT&T store when it opened up at 7AM last friday to pick-up my iphone 3GS. Unfortunately, it took them a couple of hours to get my phone connected to the network. It seems that their system wasn't quite ready particularly with my 2G to 3GS upgrade path. The cool features for the new phone are video (including built-in trimmer), voice control which is quite accurate and fun to use, and compass which by itself doesn't mean much but combined with the map automatically turns your phone into a GPS that points in the right direction.

I was still unhappy with the memo sync feature but finally settled with the app MOMO which made my treo memo transition to iphone very smooth. We switched from cablevision to directv and I got a bonus with the iphone directv app that allows you to program the vcr remotely. With a few clicks, I can view the channel guide listing and turn on my recording by just selecting the program.
