My IPhone has gone from moderately slow and useful to almost totally useless-all of a sudden, it refuses to give me any data over the Edge network. No Twitter, no email, no nothing-unless I am in range of a Wi-Fi signal. I don’t know why this occurred-it was functioning just fine one day, and utterly not the next day. So I may be phone shopping soon, because an IPhone without connectivity is basically a big flat rectangle, and if I can’t connect outside of WiFi, I’m not sure how much use it is to me.

Every year around this time, I start getting charged up for baseball season-the fantasy preview magazines start to show up, and I start rereading my baseball books. I have already polished off "The Neyer/James Guide To Pitchers", and I'm starting in on "Baseball Dynasties" next. About 45 more days until pitchers and catchers report, everybody!
