Smile...Stuff, as they say happens...I was just as confused as you 
were....Smile...

No need to apologize or whatever. I just was in my semi-usual confused 
state...Grin...

Let me know though how things turn out with the Apple product as I'm getting 
close and I heard next week the I-phone/Verizon thing is going to happen.

By the way I do have from the "Blind Geek Zone" some podcasts for those 
interested in Voice Over and related things.

Anyway peace as alwys.

Joe
