not serious, a toy, too gamey? Like they said in 1984? For 25 years that’s the only argument against Apple products.

It recently went on the blink, so I shopped for a new phone, intent on not getting another iPhone for obvious reasons – quirky, can’t use office software to develop spreadsheets, too gamey, locks up when it decides to, no video (except on the GS), overpriced for what it is, iTunes is horrible, etc. I looked very hard at Blackberry, Nokia, etc. and found that the iPhone is still the best phone for now, even given its intended use for younger people. There are several people who have dropped their iPhine accounts and opted for non-Apple models, which will be the trend once the competition comes into full swing. Apple is riding the wave, for now.
