Finally, Whoopi doesn't use the myTouch 3G for anything so mundane as researching new material, checking sales of her various books, emailing her agent or the usual Hollywood rubbish; instead she's buying shoes and finding places to eat hot dogs. Hey, T-Mobile, I eat hot dogs too! This is obviously the smartphone for me. [vms f66dcfc8a3282ac2bf10] [via SlashGear]
