I like the emergency podcast format that you all got rolled out today. it's a good way to keep listeners up to date. How on Earth could Sprint's outside council not be familiar with what Sprint did with WiMax? I hopped on that bandwagon with the HTC Evo on Sprint and the service was absolutely awful!
