Gordian knot



Today turned into one of the most frustrating episodes. I unpacked from my long trip and on the way back from returning the rental van to San Diego, I decided to buy the new Motorola droid phone from Verizon.  All was well and good until the guy realized that it wouldn't accept my email address. No problem, thought I might have a rookie so went to another Verizon store. Same thing. Gmail wouldn't accept my pacbell address which is a yahoo account which is made by att which is in league with apple which is verizon's enemy which wants another hundred dollars so I forwarded from my yahoo page to my droid and now I can't get the mac mail on my desktop so I guess its either or and neither yahoo or google have any real live tech support so I swim in the miasma and the old blackberry suddenly doesn't look so bad after all...I will try again tomorrow. Have completely destroyed my email functionality.

too bad about the new phone. The ads make it look amazing. Don't know if this is the problem, but check this youtube video:
