The Macintosh uses an experimental pointing device called a ‘mouse’. There is no evidence that people want to use these things. I dont want one of these new fangled devices.

It’s not that the Droid is a bad phone; it’s fine. It just has a slower chip than the Samsung Moment, a clunkier body than the Palm Pre, a more basic UI than HTC’s Hero, and… a puzzling alarm-clock stand. The Moment’s speed, the Pre’s slick design, and the Hero’s UI are the only things that put those things on par with Apple’s iPhone. The Droid has nothing those phones don’t, except of course for this commercial. Which is cool, if you like commercials, but less important if you like smartphones that do stuff well.

A J. D. Power & Associates survey found that Windows Mobile had the lowest satisfaction rating among customers of any smartphone operating system. The iPhone has by far the most satisfying software, the study found. Android is a distant second, followed closely by BlackBerry’s operating system.
