Spouting nonsense like that is really irresponsible, Kyle.

The truth is that the iphone is a sweet little device. With a bluetooth 
keyboard, I can read & respond to email about as efficiently as I can on

books, as an alarm clock, and -- well, I could go on and on. Oh yeah, I 
almost forgot, sometimes I use it as a phone.
