The fires begin to burn.

Today things took a rosier turn for me in that one of the teachers I am working with began to construct her wiki and did a fantastic job on the opening page. Check it out here if you like.

After the ups and downs of yesterday, it was good to be back in the classrooms today working on setting students up with Lecture123 accounts so they can view their Russian lessons in realtime. I hope they use it to help them study; I know their parents are going to be excited to see it.

In other news, the excitement from Cupertino was too much to bear. If not for the foreboding pricetag, I would be even nuttier over the iPhone, but $500 is a lot to shell out for a phone that is going to depend on Cingular's network. Personally, I will wait it out with my Treo, which does much of what the iPhone does, and then move on when my contract is up. It might be a long 16-months, though.

I can't help it... I'm buying it. My Treo 650 is dying, and I can't resist. I'm coming up on the end of my contract anyway, and I have been looking for a reason to change my number from a NYC number to a Philly one. Now I have it.

I'll let you know how well it works. :)

It's tempting, but I am at least going to wait until the end of summer to make the switch. I'm thinking prices might drop slightly, and I want to see what Cingular does with its data package. I opted not to go with it on the Treo because of the price and my usage level.

Let me know how it works out.
