It scares me to watch this video. People really have no clue and very short memories. Like anything else, you get what you wish for. So when the dpw, water, gas, electric folks turn in their conventional two way radios and after they've been in the rack charger for two years and either don't work or get sold... something bad is gonna happen and all these people are going to be left holding the bag with piece of crap I phones that don't do anything except give you the time of day. Then all these "know it alls" will be standing around scratching their heads. Donny, the cheerleader routine is old, especially when you have no clue the implications of what you are talking about. Live through 9/11 or Sandy here in NY where cell phones didn't work for days and weeks on end and then formulate an educated opinion. He'll, at&t barely has usable service here now, and it's under no duress.
