Good to hear there are developers keen on making the "it just works"   
work for normal users, I'm moving more and more from a technical geek  
to a just need it to work for me user:-).  Also very pleasing to see  
there is a lot of Mac users interested in this project. I assume many  
others will find this project as I did after been disillusioned by  
the Iphone and looking for something else that will fill the need of  
a phone that will allow me to share my Mac apps and data I chose with  
my phone.  Looking forward to a phone that allows me to use it the  
way I want to use it, can take it with me every where I go (different  
countries) and swap SIM for the local carrier so I don't get hosed by  
roaming charges etc.  Now there is an idea, program the ability to  
copy SIM card profiles so I can switch between SIMs with out  
physically inserting it when I need it.  Not sure how possible that  
is, don't know enough about how the SIM cards work.

Keep up the good work.
