Botax?

Congress is making noises about taxing cosmetic surgery to help pay for the health care debacle.

I can't believe the current Speaker of the House would allow that.

wireless Internet via one's cell phone company

So apparently one can get a USB device from one's cell phone company that gives one an Internet connection. Goodness knows it's the first time I've seen Bill Curtis since I lived in Lisle, Illinois and saw him on Chicago's CBS affiliate.

For those of you out there who have or (have had and dropped) such a facility, what are we talking about in terms of cost, throughput, and especially whether they impose caps past which the cost per unit data transferred jumps to insane rates?
