you should just get a man's phone so i can dominate you in OOTP.

work pays for my entire plan, unlimited data and everything. probably saves me over a grand/year

you won't hear a single complaint from me about my phone

Sounds like an excuse so you don't get dominated in OOTP.

There is a minor league system I guess. You can't control it, but at least it allows you to stash players and most prospects who have MLB experience are there. I'm really enjoying this as a time filler, it's not as in depth as the usual OOTP but because of that I'm actually playing the games rather than simming all of them like I do on the PC version, and like I said before, it's a lot more in depth than I thought it would be for a smart phone version.

I don't want to come off as an Apple fanboy here even though I'm going to a little bit. This is the reason I have an iPhone. With all the phones running some incarnation of Android it's going to be impossible for companies like Netflix to support each phone. With iPhone there is one OS to support and the only way you might not be able to run an app is if your phone is a couple years old which still is pretty unlikely. People are mad at Netflix right now for a failed roll-out, but I don't think it's Netflix's fault.

I just attended an Adobe presentation stating that they are about to (or maybe just did with CS5.5) release a product that allows programmers to code in one mobile language and then automagically convert it other, compliant languages. I think this problem is just about over. Code once and be done.

If you want the best support, get the latest Nexus phone. Other high-end android phones are also reasonably well supported. Android's biggest problem is manufacturers continually flood the market with incredibly cheap, under-powered phones that have trouble running Angry Birds.

Hope so. My contract expires in Februrary but I'm eligible for a phone discount in October. If I can be sure that buying an Android phone is future proof (at least length of a contract proof) I might switch if ATT can't hook me up with a good deal. I'm not an Apple diehard, I've never owned a Mac even though that's all we had around my parents house.

Yahoo released an official fantasy baseball app. ;-D

It looks amazing but it's not quite as easy to use as Fantasy Guru. That's my first impression.
