Comment Try electrical engineering instead (Score 1) 220

Computer science job generally equals programming, which means sitting down at a computer all day. If that doesn't interest you, try a related field: electrical and/or computer engineering. This opens up a wide variety of jobs all the way across the physical activity spectrum. Some engineer spend all day at a desk designing/programming, but others are in field service and spend lots of time traveling and working on physical machinery.

Comment Can't justify the high monthly cost (Score 1) 851

I have a prepaid AT&T GoPhone which makes all the calls I care to make and costs me $9/month. In addition, I have an iPod Touch that does nearly everything an iPhone does whenever WiFi is available for $0/month. Sure, it would be nice to have a new iPhone that would work everywhere, but I just can't justify increasing my monthly fee by 700% for the convenience.
