“Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean’s roar”

Sorry, couldn’t resist the Zeppelin reference.  The Ocean to which I’m referring, of course, is my Helio Ocean.  Looks like Helio, the makers and service providers for said device, have been bought out by Virgin Mobile.  They’re saying that the service and the contracts will remain completely the same, which is good.  I’m rather a fan of my Helio.  It’s got great coverage, fantastic features, and it pretty much Just Works.

Unfortunately, this means I owe a “You Told Me So” to my friend Paul, who was saying something about Helio being ripe for a buy-out just a week ago.  I was, however, right when I contended that I my service will probably not be in jeopardy.

So anyway, Helio gets bought out.  Effect to the end-user?  Probably none.  All in all, I’m pretty happy with that.
