Ahhh yes, a sample of friends... the quick "BS" test.
Granted it is quite possible I am wrong, but as long as I am, I shall assume most of your friends are tech savvy like you and would consider themselves as such. But riddle me this: would your mother know it's a "scamish" ad? Would your little sister?
How about most of your classmates that believe "MySpace" is the epitome of technology?
Now you understand who makes up most of the internet?
I watched myself while trying to put myself in your shoes and you all are right... I'm coming off too marketing-like. My apologies, fellow niners.
To the point about bias, however, I really do believe in using the best technology for you. So while the iPhone is not for me, I will never deny its absolutely superior web browsing capabilities. And I will even admit here in this public forum that I prefer
GMail due to its simplicity and integrated chat that many of my friends can often be found using.
I am a technology enthusiast first, a Microsoft employee second, and Charles' friend third.
