6:00 PM -- I'm going to watch the progress of the latest BlackBerry Curve with interest. (See T-Mob Ships UMA BlackBerry.)

The 8320 is the first WiFi-enabled BlackBerry to allow calls over WiFi using unlicensed mobile access technology. T-Mobile is using it with its Hotspot@Home service.

How well the device sells is likely to be a good sign of how popular the overall service is.

Dan is to hats what Will.I.Am is to ridiculous eyewear. Fedora, trilby, tam-o-shanter -- all have graced the Jones pate during his career as the go-to purveyor of mobile essentials.

But hey, Dan is so much more than 4G maps and state-of-the-art headgear. Before joining the Light Reading team in 2002 he was an award-winning cult hit on Broadway (with four 'Toni' awards, two 'Emma' gongs and a 'Brian' to his name) with his one-man show, "Dan Sings the Show Tunes."

His perfectly crafted blogs, falling under the "Jonestown" banner, have been compared to the works of Chekhov. But only by Dan.

He lives in Brooklyn with cats.
