AOL announced that the company will purchase HuffingtonPost.com for a reported $315 million.

From the recent Verizon Wireless ad it is now clear. The company wants to show that the iPhone 4 will work the best only in their network. It says the iPhone 4 is beautiful, intelligent, genius, “but does your network work?”. Then the famous Verizon specs guy picks up the call and says, “yes, I can hear you now!”.
I guess this was well expected. Verizon customers have been dying to get their hands on the iPhone for a long, long time. No wonder the iPhone 4 has already been sold out from their website. However, not to worry, you can buy one soon when Verizon restocks their supplies on February 9th. You can even do the same from your local Verizon store the next day (February 10th).
