iPhone Tops Windows Mobile Share; MS Releases iPhone App

Mod parent up! Smart playlists for the win, especially on as little storage as 2 GB. I'm going to want to clean and retransfer stuff on there all the time and I certainly don't want to have to mess around with selective copy/paste all the time.

iPhone Tops Windows Mobile Share; MS Releases iPhone App

ssstraub Re:Innovation pays (269 comments)

Whats the obsession with overloading old people with technology? How useful is a PDA/SmartPhone if you cannot read the screen? I'd wager that any 65 year old lady that truly needed a PDA or SmartPhone is probably innovative enough to be able to figure it out, regardless of which model or manufacturer you give her.

True enough. I should've said hand that Treo to any non-computer person and watch them fumble around. Hand them an iPhone and they'll be using 75% of it's functionality in about 10 minutes. And I'm not talking about "advanced functionality the iPhone will never have," I'm talking about basic call management, email, calendar, internet, etc.

The interface of the Treo is borderline terrible. Familiarity != intuitive. If you can hand your Treo to your 65 year old grandmother and she can figure it out without you walking her through each step, I'll eat my hat.

The fact that I never have to use a stylus or navigate an extremely poorly thought out menu bar at the top of the screen makes an iPhone so much less aggravating as a portable device.

I've used a Treo, and I'd rather keep my old Motorola V300 than use one of those daily.

Microsoft's Office Web Will Do iPhone, Linux, Mac

ssstraub Re:Why this article is bullcrap (202 comments)

But will this experience be the same as it is for OWA? You don't need IE to use it, but if you use anything else you get a far inferior version to work with that drops half the features.
