So it would appear that:
--Palm is being an anticompetitive jackass for selling their phone locked to a single carrier, and
--Palm is a greedy pig for selling it for $200, with "rebate", and heavily subsidized by the carrier, even though it only costs them $170 to make, OMG, obscene profit margins, LOL, and
--Sprint is being a money grubbing monster for only selling the Pre with a mandatory data plan, much like Hitler, and
--Palm is deliberately withholding obvious and trivial technology that my sock drawer has had for the last 50 years, such as video recording, visual voicemail, flash, and decent camera (only 3MP? LOL!) just so they can sell us a new phone later, on account of the greediness, and
--The Pre is useless because it has absolutely horrible battery life compared to the free LG phone I got a few years ago, so good luck Pretards when your precious multitasking leaves you with a worthless lump of plastic just when it could have saved your life
-- Palm is full of shit for trying to pass off "web apps" as real apps which my Nokia here has had since the late 1800s, and
--Everybody who buys a Pre is a mindless robot who has been programmed by hype and marketing, LOL.
I think that about covers it.
