Homeless radio man briefly held by police
LOS ANGELES | Ted Williams, the Ohio homeless man whose smooth radio voice made him an Internet sensation, had to do some quick talking to Los Angeles police.
Officers were called when Mr. Williams and his daughter got into a heated argument Monday night at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa, Officer Catherine Massey said.
“I don’t know how loud they were,” but the argument at about 9 p.m. led to a disturbance report, Officer Massey said Tuesday.
“It was minor. Both parties were angry, but there were no signs of visible abuse,” she said. “They were brought in, calmed down, talked to and released.”
She said she did not know the nature of the argument.
Verizon to start selling iPhone
NEW YORK | Verizon Wireless made the long-awaited announcement Tuesday that it will start selling a version of the iPhone 4 on Feb. 10, giving U.S. iPhone buyers a choice of carriers for the first time.
New Yorker Wes Moe can’t wait. He has wanted one to accompany his iPad and Mac, but held back because he shares a Verizon plan with his wife, a BlackBerry user.
“I’m super happy with all those other Apple devices, and I want that phone in my hands,” said Mr. Moe, 32.
In the U.S., the iPhone has been exclusive to AT&T Inc. since it launched in 2007, frustrating many people who for one reason or another haven’t wanted an AT&T phone.
“I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been asked and my colleagues have been asked. When will the iPhone work on the Verizon network?” said Apple’s chief operating officer, Tim Cook, at Tuesday’s launch event.
Orders for existing Verizon customers will start Feb. 3. The price will be $200 or $300 with a two-year contract, about the same as the iPhone through AT&T.
