You\'re right Joe, these guys could really have done with your phone.

1- Yes, I completely understand your point, in fact, it\'s fairly close to mine. Their products appear to be very good, in most respects, and I hate that, and I hate the way they want to control every aspect of how you use them. I hate their superior, elitist attitude, and the fact that their consumers seem to buy in to it. I hate the fact that ipods die after a year or so, and you have replace them, while my little Sony 2GB unit has been going strong for 4 years, might not have all the features, but has fantastic battery life. And most of all I hate the fact that if I got one, I would probably get hooked.

2- My phone isn\'t really a smart phone, but you can have a couple of functions happening at the same time, but I don\'t, it doesn\'t really like it.
I\'m looking at upgrading next month to an HTC Magic. It won\'t cost me anymore than the phone I have now, and it will be a lot more useful. It uses the android operating system. Is there anything I should look out for, any reasons I shouldn\'t get this one?

Hey Dave, to your second point for many people, indeed the journey is the best part. For neurotic OCD individuals like myself who find being lost akin to having a spinal tap, the journey is an unfortunate byproduct of travel. Hence my need for multiple comforting redundant confirmations of what I\'m doing. \'Tis a cruel phobia.

Hey Carl, that is a very good read on where I am. Also, I\'m sure that there is no shortage of fun in winding me up, I tend to swear much more creatively.

1) Perhaps, but it sounds like an old argument you have with Lando. There are things I like my mac for, there are things I like my pc for. I hate my vista laptop because it\'s cheap and runs vista. Perhaps you don\'t explain your position properly but it\'s no big thing. I\'m not a power user but I appreciate stable systems. That\'s a winner. Don\'t beat yourself up over it. Walk away. We will never speak of it again...


2) As I said in the show reply I think it depends on the type of person you are. A pal of mine who lives right in central London dived onto his phone to find a street that was not far from our location (and his residence). I knew where it was because i\'d been out exploring and knew roughly how to get there. I don\'t have a smart phone because I don\'t need one. Part of it is definitely because I prefer to be more personable in my adventuring. The point of the journey is not necessarily to arrive...

A very quick summation on Joe Vs Apple and Lando: I got the impression over the years you disliked Apple computers/divices and you views were changing on the subject as the company evolved and put out various devices. I just thought on the Ipad show you were expressing that Apple computers suited some peoples needs and Lando was just having fun winding you up.
