Well, I'm happy with my "stupid phone". I don't especially want a
pocket-sized computer (at least not one that's tightly chained inside
a walled garden, whether it be Apple's, or Microsoft's, or any one
else's garden). As long as it reliably makes phone calls, and doesn't
require charging EVERY DAY I can be happy with it.
