Although I've never used a single product of Apple, I want to stab myself in the eye whenever I see screenshot of iPhone chat app on Reddit. Why do you have to have speech bubbles in a chat application, why Apple? It's not a comic strip, it feels condescending that they thought their users would require/want an IM dialogue to be represented with speech bubbles.

 

Ahem.

Windows Phone 7 SMS - with comic speech bubbles.
