Diapers had finally become history in our household and I had time to start looking at ways to bring some income into my household besides clipping coupons and growing our food.
I raised my eyebrows in questioning response. Elaine explained that she and Tom had defined "blue jobs" and "pink jobs" - and, predictably, she did only the pink jobs. Also predictably, those jobs matched up pretty well with stereotypic "women's work". Cooking, provisioning, keeping the boat clean (including taking care of mold and mildew when it showed up), taking care of finances, and handling written and two way radio communication were some of the tasks that Elaine enumerated for me.

You just have to do some digging to find them.
One of the biggest launches in recent memory was motorola's Droid.

The Droid has the advantage of being sold on the superior Verizon network, and is also sold independently without any phone plan. The Android software it runs on is open source and thus, much more flexible than the iPhone's OS. It also has a physical keypad that is much easier to type on than a touchscreen one.
