“Having now wandered in the wilds of various cellphones over the last few months, I am re-reminded why Apple’s iPhone is underestimated. I have a Palm Treo 700, a Research in Motion Blackberry 8800, and a Samsung TV phone, and they all suck,” Paul Kedrosky writes for SeekingAlpha.

Kedrosky lists five things that bug him about the above mentioned trio, and that favor the iPhone:

• Touch screens rule
• Big screens rule
• Mobile fonts are #$%!
• Mobile interfaces are thoughtless

  1. ChrissyOne, Spark has nailed it more than anyone here.
    And Marmocet…?….do you know the meaning of the word troll in this context. I think you need to go elsewhere mate and get a grip.

  2. In a recent article in ‘Healthcare Informatics’, Ballmer was asked questions about their role in furthering technology in healthcare. There was no question about Google, but Ballmer couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a dig. He is a dolt!

    I won’t let MS near my Mac, and as far away as possible from my healthcare.

  3. You know what, MDN? While I’m ever so relieved that my Mac News Experience is now confined to a safe, predictable fixed width, the rest of your major redesign has left me with a distinct feeling of “meh…”
    The fact that others like to use my name to post troll shit weighs somewhat heavier on my list of areas to improve.
    Color me nonplussed.

  4. Hmmmm, While I am seeing a lot of “new” features coming out for cell phones these days (I am sure they are in response to the iPhone) the big thing everyone is saying is that the interface and functionality is crap. Its a pretty car but it dont run. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />

    Apple, It just works. Battle cry of a new generation (and an older one. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” /> )

  5. Handle thieves are Microsoft astroturfers. They only grab the handles of those who make the most sense and hurt the Microsoft cause by posting the truth.

    Most negative remarks from people who should know better are from astroturfers in disguise.
