I was going to call my mom in Cleveland (well, South Euclid if you want to be picky). Up in my office I looked at my desk and spied the iPad. My mom, in theory, has an iPod that can do Facetime.
I have got to say that this is a win. Much, much better than a simple phone!
Technology, as much as I bitch about it incessantly, can sometimes really make something better.
