    Anyway, you're better off with an old school phone or a big fancy one. I can't stand how it takes almost a second for a "standard" colour phone to change screens. Not all of them are slow, but my goodness I'd rather use a string and a cup instead of some phones.
    Thats poor engineering, trying to pack too mny bells and whistles into a microprocessor that is about as powerful as the one in my toaster oven. When it comes to cell phones, less IS more. Its a phone, not a laptop, all you need it to do is make phone calls and send/recv text messages. If you cant go 15 minutes without checking yor email then you need to buy a laptop or take your ADD medicine.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    But a laptop's too heavy . With smartphones everything's at your disposal.

    Not the netbooks. They are the all general-purpose machine to carry around all the time. Phones are not.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    what's mostly at your disposal is a quick route to RSI and reading glasses.
