Rosie O'Donnell Tells Switched All...About the iPhone!




It's safe to say that Rosie O'Donnell has done it all, from stand-up and comedy movies to talk shows and even a video blog (that she actually updates regularly). She's also involved in R Family Vacations, a cruise line aimed at gay and lesbian families, which was designed to let the kids of gay and lesbian parents meet other kids from similar families. This year, Rosie and her partner, Kelli O'Donnell, who have four kids, will once again be part of the entertainment on board, along with other celebrities including Cyndi Lauper and Sam Harris. The parental pair took a few minutes to answer our Switched Questionnaire, and it turns out they're pretty stacked in the mobile phone department. To find out more, read on....

What gadgets do you always bring with you to the set (for down-time)?


Rosie: We always have our Nextel cell phone plus an iPhone when I travel.

What cell phone do you have right now and what do you love/hate about it?

Rosie: We have a Nextel phone because we love using the two-way radio service with the family. It's easy for the kids to use, plus it seems to work many times when regular cell service does not.

Kelli: I also have an iPhone that I have become addicted to. There are so many cool aspects to it that I have not even figured out completely.

Who's the last person you sent a text message to and what was it about?

Rosie: We sent a text to our oldest son before he was beginning his swim meet race to wish him good luck.

Where do you go (site or service) pretty much every time you get online?

Rosie: We frequently go to The Drudge Report and the Huffington Post almost every time we're online.

What annoys you most about your iPod, cell phone, or laptop (or any other gadget)?

Kelli: I wish that my iPhone had the two-way radio service so I did not have to bring both gadgets with me. Other than that, I am constantly amazed at how far technology has come and have very few complaints.

Name one thing you wish your iPod/cellphone/laptop (any gadget) could do that it doesn't do now?

Rosie: I wish that you could iChat from your iPhone -- wouldn't that be cool?!?!

What upcoming gadget can you not wait to get your hands on?

Rosie: There are no new items that I can think of. I feel content with what I have.

You're stranded on a desert island: What gadget do you bring?

Rosie/Kelli: I would bring my iPhone. You can do just about anything -- from e-mailing and surfing the 'Net to listening to music, watching movies, and taking photos -- on it. What more do you need? Well, besides someone to share it with on the island!!!!

What's the most-played song or artist on your iPod?

We love Broadway show tunes, but we also love Annie Lennox, Robbie Williams, and a number of '80s tunes that make us feel young again!

What's the longest time you've ever spent playing a video game in one sitting and what game was it?

Rosie: We don't play video games.

"Do you use/have a Mac or PC? Why?"

Kelli: I have a PC 'cause it makes the most sense with how my brain works.
