    Here's a nice little story about me and my Storm and why I'm incredibly impressed despite its software issues...

    I'm on my way home from a haircut and a movie on my day off (today) and I'm at a traffic light, two cars back from the light. It's raining, not horribly, but enough that the roads are wet and the soaked-in oil is starting to come up to the surface. I hear a thump; I thought it was the radio but I glanced in my rear-view mirror more out of habit than anything. What do I see? I looked up just in time to see the car behind me hit me courtesy of the car three-back from me. Four-car accident folks. Someone's horn is blaring, I saw steam from a cracked radiator; I get out of the car. In my haste, my Storm clatters on the pavement into a little puddle (face up, thank god).

    The guy two cars back is out of his car and staggering around; without thinking I grab my slightly-soaked, rained-on, pavement-struck Storm and dial 911. I report the accident to the dispatcher and request an ambulance 'ASAP.' As it turns out, I was the only one on-scene with a cellular and my little Storm took its lickin' and kept tickin'. The guy who was staggering around? Neck injury and a concussion; maybe more, but that's all I caught from EMS on their way past me while I waited with the other non-injured for instructions from the police.

    Any device that can take that abuse and still perform is alright in my book.

    Glad everything worked out. I find it crazy that out of four people there was only one cell phone, what is this, 1998?

    Nice story. I'll hug my Storm tomorrow when I get it. Maybe I will luck out with a model from Mexico and not Hungary that works! But I'm sure I'll be updating the firmware when I get home!

    The one guy might have had a phone... but he thought it was Tuesday and couldn't tell me his name, one vehicle was an elderly couple, the other was some teenage kid with a tracfone and no minutes. Very 1998-ish, though; I agree.
