In fact, I use more data service than voice, and my thousands of AT&T rollover minutes will attest to that. Heck, if only VoIP services were embraced by mobile phone com

That Damn Etiquette

Wed, 14 May 2008 17:33:02 PDT
When I read about the recent arrest of the infamous “Soulja Girl” (synopsis: she harassed an old lady on Atlanta’s metro train system, and the video got viral. for more info, watch here), I applauded.
