(1) Comparing (65) with (75): I am having a very tough time with news feeds using
the newer (75): Reuters: cannot look at videos; AP & WSJ - scroll locks up, hard.
Hopefully the move from (65) to (75) somehow incidentally broke my experiences
with these feeds and Verizon has not gotten cold feet and clamped down on
surfing for multimedia (a security issue, I am sure) !

(2) My iPOD music is under Windows Vista Business - the Desktop Manager is very
buggy. When I try to use the Media Manager to copy this music to my Storm, it
crashes every time. I think it needs Roxio, but I am clueless. My XP, SP-3
installation of Desktop Manager is clearly in much better shape, but my iPOD music
is not there.

(3) I am getting spectacular results looking at scrolling pdf files of nuclear oil well
logs (zoom, pan, scroll). Will we always need to play email games with such files ?
(Some of this data is quite proprietary and I would prefer if the Storm could crack
such files directly.)

(4) Verizon Navigator is the MAX ! Please don't add WiFi, if security is compromised,
even a little.

(Forgot to mention, I traded in my 8830 for a new Storm.)
