@Eldgredge, I appreciate the sentiment, but you are right...it probably doesn't attack the heart of the issue. Oh well, back to the drawing board. :)

@Hailey - Sadly, the best I've come up with is to redefine the hour to be 48 minutes long. Probably not too helpful.

@Hailey - If time-saving technology has reached it's limit, maybe we need to go to a 30 hour day!

Hailey, 

You feel there aren't enough hours in the day because there aren't enough hours in the day. :D That's my eternal problem, too. What kind of technology time savers are you looking for?

@Wale, therte is a good lesson in your story...start with obvious and easy to fix and work your way to complex and difficult to address when trying to solve technological problems.

@Susan, Tivo saves tons of time...and yet I always feel there aren't enough hours in the day! :)  I may have to look around for some more technology time savers.

t.alex, 

I don't see your point about the laptop. :( What does the laptop has to do with my phone experiment? The phone experiment was for writing an article about it. I need my laptop for writing. :D

@tirlapur - Very true. At times, I have to go back to the beginning of a troubleshooting exercise and ask myself "What assumptions did I make without validating them?" It is oftern the simple things that get us crossed up.
