Plenty of other sites you can go to if you prefer a homogenised view of the world. The greyness of the people in Apple's 1984 ad campaign springs to mind, if you can't handle DED throwing the odd sledge hammer at the mainstream, then what are you doing here?
Strange a search of mobile java which was the main source of programs for dumb phones before smart phones took over i.e. after Apple launched the iPhone, doesn't seem to show much use of the term "app". Games, software programs, themes, etc seem to dominate. Funny, that.
Being used to Macbook trackpads and keyboards using $200 laptops is a very different, annoying and awful experience. No amount of trying to justify the performance of cheap, penny pinching components will change that.
I was referring to the available USB modems. http://www.vodafone.com.au/personal/wireless-internet/mobile-broadband/starter-packs The customer assumed that because they bought a laptop it would work AND being a cheapskate with a $250 laptop did not want to spend the extra that a WiFi modem would cost.
