iPhone: Buy now, or wait?

Right now, I am a Bell Mobility customer with a Blackberry Curve 8330. I have an upgrade credit coming up in March. Now it's decision time: Do I upgrade to an iPhone on Bell's new HSPA+ network, or do I wait until June / July to see what the new iPhone brings.

It's a tricky spot to be in. Sure, I could get the iPhone in March and be perfectly satisfied with it for the next four months. But come June, something better will be released by Apple. It might not be that much of a game changer, but at the same time, it might. Steve Jobs reportedly said the next iPhone will be an "A+ update... that Android / Google won't be able to keep up with"

That could be Jobs just trying to build hype, which we all know he does well. But at the same, what if it is something truly amazing?

I could sell the 3GS in June and purchase the new iPhone for full price, but I don't know if I want to do that or not.

On the flip side of this, if I upgrade now, I could skip the 2010 iPhone and be eligible for an upgrade come time for the 2011 iPhone which could be even more of a game changer, perhaps even supporting 4G LTE.

So, what would you do? Buy an iPhone in March, or wait until June?

The state of TNA wrestling

Ok, so Hogan has been with TNA for a few months now. The first live episode with him was awesome, full of surprises and a through back to the glory days of WCW and the NWO.
Now, we're in some bizzarre transitional phase. There are glimpses of awesomeness everywhere, but then they toss out some crappiness. Example: Kurt Angle vs. AJ Styles for the title a few weeks ago. Earl Hebner rang the bell without Angle tapping out, rehashing the old "Montreal Screwjob" angle, again. TNA has done that same angle three times. Seriously guys, that's getting old.
Anyways, it seems TNA may be moving to Monday nights now. That could lead to some good competition, and I'm looking forward to it. Hopefully Hogan sets some clear goals and milestones for the company and they stop copying old WWF/WCW angles and come up with some of their own.
