Is the new Verizion iPhone 4S able to surf the net and be on a call simultaneously yet?

That's not right either. You need UMTS/WCDMA service for that. GSM isn't able to handle simultaneous data and voice any more than CDMA2000 is.

Ticking sound coming from a .pkg package? Don't let the .bom go off! Inspect it first with Pacifist. Macworld - five mice!

Nope, you'd need a real 4G device for that on VZW.
