Verizon Wireless Helps For Safe Travel

Daily Crunch: New Times Edition

logo_vzw.gifVerizon Wireless is offering some aid to travelers this summer. Verizon is offering several add-on options to ease your summer travel plans when you hit the road, including the VZ Navigator, a GPS-enabled Get It Now app that transforms the handset into a navigation device. VZ Navigator is available for $9.99 for unlimited monthly access or $2.99 for one-day use on select Get It Not-enabled phones. Roadside Assistance service is also available for $3.00 per month, with emergency help 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And this help includes towing, lockout services, fuel delivery, and tire service.

The company is also asking customers to help others in need of safe and secure communications by donating their old wireless phones at any Verizon Wireless store. These phones will go to the HopeLine program for victims of domestic violence.

    Steve, well written here. Apple was fast to market when it came to syncing users’ data across computers and sharing bookmarks, contacts, mail, etc. Now that Google has done it better and more universally, it makes sense that the two teams work together to leverage where each is strong.

    And Steve has got to find a way to set up Apple for a time when he’s possibly no longer there. This looks like yet another step in that direction. As much as we Mac fans would like to think, he’s no deity, and he won’t live forever.

    But we’re all delusional if we think this is a one-person company. Microsoft, Google and the rest know Apple has got a deep bench, and we’re going to see a lot of them going forward.

    All they have to do is call a press conference and everyone will fly down 280 and pull into Apple’s Cupertino’s headquarters like trained lemmings.

    Apple doesn’t really use the web themselves. Their customers do, but they don’t blog, or participate in community anything.
