    Being over 41, I find it less than interesting that you lump everyone like me in the same bucket.

    You obviously are under 41. Just you wait!

    i will be 30 on may 24th this year.

    i am a music producer, have had my own established studio since 1994 and have been producing music since the late '80's. I have had some success with a couple of established artists and get some kick backs from my publishing company thru ASCAP.

    I am also a video photographer for a FOX afflilate in cincinnati. I am also a film cameraman and steadicam Operator/Assist. I have done some film/video projects for different companies/unsigned artists over the years.

    Audio/Video is my bag and technical stuff relating to those fields (but i still cant get that blasted jakes logo hack to work for me... )

    im not the typical wall street type but i do enjoy gadgets.

    whos next?

    38 Today. Commercial Real Estate Consultant. Early adopter of most technology items that have even minimal use In fact, I was one of the first few hundred people to own a Palm Pilot way back when.

    Even with all its drawbacks with respect to memory, etc. I am a bigger fan of the Pocket PC platform... I don't get the MS bashing...makes no sense to me, but then again, I am not a software developer or a competitor.

    I love the i300 and the developer support for Palm OS is great The i300 was the impetus to get me to switch to Sprint after 15 years with AT&T (formerly Cellular 1). Only complaint about i300 is that I can't see the screen in even moderate sunlight .

    Sorry Pete, I think I have "crusty" priveleges on this board. I'm forty-sixteen years old. (You know: forty-eight; forty-nine; forty-ten; forty-eleven...). I promise not to use the phrase "Why in my day, we..."

    Architect: Residential, Office, Commercial, Industrial.

    Palm user for a couple of years (How did I live without one?) but the I300 is my first cell phone. PDA use = 90%, Phone use = 10%.

    Time out for a thanks to everyone on this forum, moderators and users alike, whose advice and knowledge have been invaluable to an "old geezer" like me. Why in my day, we... - oops!

    My turn!! I come in at 24, a good chin, and a 78" reach. I enjoy rollerblading, theatre, and reading, and I'm looking for a woman that.....:p I'm in residential sales downtown Chicago everyone. I've been fiddling with rehab work for the past 6 months and am considering redirecting my career to interior architecture.

    I guess I win the prize so far, as the only one who voted in the over 61 category.
    I am an Insurance Agent and involved with automation within the insurance industry, serving on the board of a major Standards setting organization as well as a few other boards.

    sounds like I'm in the middle of everything - 30 somethin (34), married and have 2 daughters (2 and 4).

    vp of tech for international project management consulting firm. Clients in hi-tech, construction (A,E & C companies), retail, IT depts of fortune 500 companies, oil/ petrochem, telecom, others. Based in san diego, work all over the world.

    Early adopter of the orig palm phone by qualcomm. Sold it on ebay after 5 weeks - lost a couple hundred $$. Ecstatic when I saw the i300 during a casual browse in CompUSA - someone finally got the phone/palm combo right!

    'Not one to immediately endorse new gadgets - but definitely capable of seeing value in those that really are best in class!

    Good point. Well, I'm certain I won't be bringing the 300! Maybe I'll bring it for ol' times sake!:p

    What are you trying to get me in trouble Marc? She visits the board sometimes

    In the similar words of one of my bretheren, "I love my I300 and my girlfriend. Just don't make me choose"!

    Funny how life works... I'm turning 50 this year, so I was happy to be included in the 41-50 group. If you do change the age ranges, I vote for the 35-60 group!!

    31

    years old, married with a 2 year old son, living in Fresno. I am a fundraising executive with a national voluntary health organization. I usually can't get the latest thing unless I can "justify" it - it makes things easier at home. But, when the I300 came out I happened to have a 2 year old Startac and a 2 year old Vx so it was time for an upgrade. The I300 was the only reason I switched to Sprint PCS - I am long time Airtouch / Verizon guy. The Sprint PCS service hasn't been intolerable, but I find that I do not have the coverage that I had with Verizon. Lucky I don't roam analog too much.

    Great thread - I too thought Mjorange was in his forties...
