    i'm not sure if it's a re-run, i remember reading before hearing that the inventor of the cell phone is now rocking a droid. but when he looked at the screen on 60 effin minutes and said "drooooid" i almost had a heart attack. the funny thing is i almost had a heart attack, but steve jobs really did. i love watching the tides change in real time. the tech community has been saying a lot to the media lately if you read between the lines.

    Yup. That guy is pretty hip. Very active 81 (?) year old too.

    I don't agree with his simple version of the phone...I mean really...who would want that nowadays.

    But some of his other ideas...voice command to a behind the ear CPU, medical monitoring 24/7, privacy gone...those all seem spot on.

    And he got the jab in about Motorola being right about portable cell phones, versus AT&T hedging on car phones. LOL.

    Great story on 60 mins.
