Good news: Verizon stores open today!

We're not even making this up, Verizon actually sent out a press release to let everyone know that their stores will be open "all day" today -- and what's more, you'll be able to purchase and take home any of its 18 offered music phones! We guess we have to hand it to these guys for making an effort (no matter how feeble) to draw some attention to themselves on iDay, though. Wait -- no we don't.
