Actually, a pact was made. A loooong time ago when the Steves & Bill were 'friends.'

Otherwise, I'm actually aware of the Java VM method decided to use, though I was not aware that they didn't actually submit the app.

In all seriousness, though, I don't see the appeal of 'smart' phones - period. E-mail & the internet are things I do when I have time to waste, otherwise I do real things most of the time.

Heh, I spend about four hours a month on my phone - a simple basic Nokia - no camera, no games, but I do have color!

Oh well.. I'm going back to my DVD project...
