    run continuous loop radar, and e-mails...i hate using my phone for these things.. screen is too damn small on the phones, and i like having a full size keyboard for e-mails... i can also keep track of work in a way that allows me to easily import the info to my billing software...just personal preference, plus i have other things that mount off the desk like the spreader control... so i can remove them during the summer...
