   I have a Color Sidekick and it rocks.  I have some serious coverage 
problems at my new house, but I will be whining to them about that 
soon.  The web browser (a REAL web browser...not useless toy WAP 
bullshit) kicks ass, and the SSH client, while slow, has made my life 
MUCH easier.  The email client (which is a real POP client, configured 
to POP mail from my mail server and send email out as 
mcguire at neurotica.com) is also wonderful.

   No, I don't work for Danger or T-Mobile. :)
