Bizarro World Apple fanboy Scott Adams — yes, THAT Scott Adams — shows some tough iPhone love
From his amusing essay in today's Wall Street Journal: "Recently I bought something called an iPhone. It drops calls so often that I no longer use it for audio conversations. It's too frustrating."
"And unlike my old BlackBerry days, I don't send e-mail on the iPhone because the on-screen keyboard is, as far as I can tell, an elaborate practical joke. I am, however, willing to respond to incoming text messages as long as they are in the form of yes-no questions and my answer is in the affirmative."
"In those cases I can simply type 'k,' the shorthand for OK, and I have trained my friends and family to accept L, J, O, or comma as meaning the same thing."
