Here's an intriguing bit of information provided to us by Adrants reader Don Russell. Russell notes the use of Amazon's paperless Kindle in a Verizon FiOS commercial which humorously compares a Verizon repairman's installations with a cable guys cancellations. They're all the same, of course.

That's not the intriguing part though. It's the Kindle, which is powered by Sprint's EVDO network that raises the eyebrow. It's not often you see a competitor's product displayed so prominently in an ad. Of course, as self-professed geek Russell notes, it does take a geek to notice these things and most other people - including the props people on the set - simply don't. Still.
