When it comes right down to it, the iPod has the potential to be so much more than a music playback device. Sure, it has some basic contact retrieval (note that I didn’t say contact “management”) capabilities, speedy-quick file storage, and a couple of nifty easter eggs, but why couldn’t it be even more expandable … Read the rest of this item

Oops. Who knew that the internal customer identifier was based on the company field? Who the heck builds systems that way? What if the user doesn’t have a company name?
