Sprint sells Netbook for a buck

Off topic a lot, I know, but it has a connection... In today's economy, I wonder how many people are going to switch from using their home desktop to using a net book (small laptop) supported by their wireless provider. Already a majority of American homes have gone wireless. According to the Wall Street Journal "the number of U.S. households opting for only cellphones outnumber those that just have traditional landlines in a high-tech shift accelerated by the recession." See their story of May 7th, 2009 More Cellphone Users Drop Landlines Entirely
I cut the wire on my land line just over a month ago but still use the wires for my DSL internet connection. The biggest change? Fewer telemarketers.
