Your civic duty?
More like obsession...
To each their own. I've owned Treos for many years, and while there are issues, they still rule the day. (and I have been a big Palm critic).
Apple may never have a removable battery, but it just goes to show their mentality - use our product and then buy a new one the next year.
I'm not saying this isn't working foe them, just that not everyone can drop $2,000 for a cell phone.
The issue is that being a "media player" is one thing, and being a "phone" is another. It my iPod dies, I am annoyed...if my phone dies I am really pissed.
I think Apple is going to learn some things about the phone market. But I am happy to see them in it - competition is good.
