Aside from Blackberry, do any other phones/PDA's offer this feature? (Verizon in particular)

The magic word is "patent."

As you may be aware of, such a feature is patented. Push or realtime is patented whereas polled or check every so many minutes is more common.

Speaking only of emails, is there really a tremendous difference between using a blackberry as opposed to a Treo or the VX9800??

You want "push" e-mail

I can't speak to patent issues, but it appears to me that any device running Windoze Mobile ought to have this feature. You might want to look into the so-called Smartphones, the HTC line of communicators, or the HP hw6xxx series of devices.

While the feature is possible, look to RIM's recent legal problems to see why push email is not a standard feature.

Write back if you don't get it.

I just don't want it. Verizon and Blackberry are not a great mix. Love blackberry's in general (yet hate them when they buzz at 3 in the morning). I would like to switch to a vx 9800 or maybe the treo but I've been told the performance is just not the same. I'll take a look at the HPs (if offered by Verizon).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
