Phones, Motorbikes...Whatever really.

Boing Boing: Ted Stevens Wants To Switch Between Phones "As I Ride My Motorcycle"
Stevens: "Let me be just the Devil's Advocate here. Could I just decide I want to keep my wireline and I want to add wireless to it? Can I have two providers on the same number?"

Awkward pause: "Um, I don't think that technology exists right now."

Stevens: "If I had an IP phone, by definition, I'd have to leave the wire... wireline phone to use it?"

Answer: "I think that is the case with the technology today."

Stevens: "Is it coming? Why shouldn't I be able to say, just by a little switch on my phone at home that's wired, I'm going off on the wireless now, I want to use this as I ride my motorcycle."
....LOL! More quality news from Boing Boing. This is the very same guy who coined "the Internet is a series of tubes". And this is the kind of intelligent well connected person that gets put into the Senate to the United States of America. Faaaaantastic.
