Simplification of 3G


The 3G iPhone has gone extraterrestrial.

Or has it? The Apple iPhone (AAPL) is rumored to be releasing a 3G phone very soon. The gadget, which even an alien could probably love, is being anticipated by many consumers.

That can’t be it. And, let’s be honest, if you’re reading this now, your life expectancy rate won’t stretch until the year 3000.

So what is 3G? Is it some complicated chip or interesting data system. Sorry. It simply means third generation. Sounds like a Star Trek sequel, so how about those iPhone loving aliens? For more of them, click here.
