    Well it just keeps on coming these days. I have been getting a ton of info from VZW lately. earlier today I had a visitor from VZW who had a minor talk with me about some upcoming changes. We left it at that for a while but now comes the picture to post up for you!!!

    VZW is going to have a name change to "Verizon"! Even more on that is the new catch phrase " Rule the Air "..........We won't be seeing the test man anymore. Not even in commercials! Guess that means no more of "can you hear me now"

    It looks to me the Verizon is offensive and they even think so too!!

    I don't think its so much as caring about it as it is about seeing Verizon evolve and take on a sort of facelift.

    The " can you hear me now" Guy has been a stable in their advertising for a while along with their map commercials.

    Its time for a change and they are making that change. Is it earth shattering news? No, but for me I like to see company's think ahead and move with the times.

    The "Can you hear me now?" guy has been outsourced by a Droid.

    Same thing I was thinking. Though I've been hearing that their 4G wouldn't go live until 4Q. Maybe they're ahead of schedule, which is extremely rare in wireless.
