Cool Site of the Day: This man travels to many foreign lands. He needs a phone that operates everywhere. GSM looks like the best bet.

Digital Minute, on your radio: Apple's new iPhone 3G is locked into AT&T's network. But could hackers soon get around this restriction?

Free Download of the Day: Building a stunning Web site isn't easy. Interactive Web applications are the key. You can make them for free.
