This Day in Tech History – My Favorite Phone

January 3 On this day way back in 1996, Motorola released its StarTac cellphone.  I remember giving up my Motorola Flip Phone for this amazingly compact and versatile device a few months after its release.  It didn’t come cheap either as I the world of contracts and the like really hadn’t taken over but I…
