Sprint has a “quiz” for parents (5 questions) that you can consider before buying your child their first phone. Here are the questions: Does your child need a phone to stay in touch?

I sat down with a new friend recently and found ourselves, per the usual, talking through startups, building companies, and raising venture capital. This was his first time putting a company together and he, unsurprisingly, has a lot of questions about how to go about “doing” all of this.
