The T-Mobile G2 is available for pre-order for current customers as low as $199.00 with a two year contract. The phone will be delivered October 6, the same day it's available everywhere else.
Few can possibly deny that simplicity rules the internet. The most popular websites for particular categories are, invariably simplistic and clean. Craigslist, Facebook (which overtook the cluttered MySpace), Twitter (which I think is more popular than Facebook), and Google are all examples of this principal in action.
In fact the entire Web 2.0 revolution and look is built on simplicity. Less form fields and buttons, ajax, and fewer clicks all feed this school of thought.
Google has announced it's intent to build a number of high speed networks in the United States. And by high speed, they mean 100 times faster than what is available today.

I installed Google Chrome for Linux, the developer build, just to see what it was like.
It's fast; It is extremely fast. I wasn't planning on using it day to day, but I find myself clicking on it more often than Firefox.
The fact that it has no easy ability to block advertisements is pretty much overshadowed by the browser's sheer speed and usability.
And I don't like advertisements. I wonder if this is what Google is banking on.
