    Netherlands gets iPhone tariff info

    Dutch readers rejoice! T-Mobile.nl has released their tariff info for the iPhone 3G. I’m going to have you look above at the screen grab or head over to T-Mo.nl because my understanding of Dutch is fairly limited and “Houd mij op de hoogte” is what I said to a charming young lady in Amsterdam last year and she showed me that she was really a man.

    Umbrella tech hasn’t matured much in the last, I don’t know, ever, so it’s nice to see someone advancing the science. When it’s wet and drizzly, umbrellas are handy, to be sure.
