    Smile Just want to share a chuckle with you all

    A West Texas cowboy was herding his cows in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.

    The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"


    The cowboy looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, Why not?"

    The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite navigation system to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
    The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe
    Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany. Within seconds, he
    receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored.
    He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.
    Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and says,
    "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."
    "That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says the cowboy.
    He watches the young man select one of the animals
    and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

    Then the cowboy says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?" The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"
    You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government", says the cowboy.
    "Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"

    "No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how
    much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about cows.......

    Now give me back my dog."

    This is absolutely true Andy.

    One software is called "Mobile Phone Tools from Motorola, and the cell phone becomes the modem for the laptop. Info comes from me brother, who has been on computers for over 30 yarons. Of course, I'm biased but consider him extremely knowledgeable on the subject.

    He's right Bob. It's kind of considered old school though now with Wi-Fi all the rage

    My friend that used to work for the guys with the black helicopters worked that way when he had a good signal, otherwise he was using his mobile satellite up link. He would take a picture and load it to his lap top and text it to my phone so I could guess where he was in Nevada.

    Huh, I just found out about some of the high speed internet on cell phones, the last one I was playing with had limited net usage, but some of this new stuff is crazy. And I never heard that you could a cell to plug in a laptop and use it like a modem. I normaly bring my laptop and gps on my trips, but now I'll have wires running every where. Hey now when I can't find something, I can just boot up and ask someone

    Wi-Fi doesn't have the best range, I don't think right?

    Man, I guess I'm way behind in techno school. I don't have wi-fi, DSL, a RazrV3, palm pilot, etc. In fact, I don't even know how to store phone numbers in my cell phone, but somehow make it thru the day. WOW!
