+ - Ask Slashdot: Best pay-as-you-go plan for text and voice only? 1

Submitted by sconeu
sconeu writes: My wife uses an assistive communciation device. She wants to use it for SMS texting... We currently have Verizon, so we don't have a SIM. The computer will take a SIM. I'm looking for a pay-as-you-go plan where I can take the SIM from a cheap phone and put it in her computer. Any suggestions?

+ - John Anderson calls for Instant Runoff 1

Submitted by sconeu
sconeu writes: In an op-ed piece in the Christian Science Monitor, former presidential candidate John Anderson calls for Instant Runoff Voting.

Who is Anderson? Most Slashdotters are too young to remember, but he was the maverick Republican candidate who went independent in 1980. He was considered a spoiler, in much the same manner as Perot in '92 and Nader in 2000 and '04.

sconeu writes: "As we all know, John C. Dvorak is almost always wrong. Therefore we need to realize when he gets it right, such as this rant on mobile phones.

His call for the death of the mobile phone industry may be a little overblown, but I'm willing to chalk it up to hyperbole in this case <grin>, because I happen to agree</grin>."
