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...

You do realize that smart phones are an absolute GODSEND for businesses, right? You may not see the appeal, but the rest of the world does which is why they exist.
