Hey now, if Android was an adequate replacement for my feature phone, I'd be able to put line breaks into text messages. Also to save those messages as drafts without specifying a recipient.

And don't even get me started on setting ring/message tones.

Yeah that's another thing. Android IS my feature phone. I still entertain the idea of getting a WM7 phone but that motherfucker would be the backup.

I'm pretty sure I can do those things on my phone as well.

Also, that LOL video was great.

I can certainly add line breaks. However, I did find I couldn't write a draft without specifying a recipient. That was a surprise to me but only because in all of the many many years of having a smartphone I've never once written a text without specifying who I would send it to.

Go to your message list, hit the menu button, select Compose, throw some text in there (without specifying a recipient), then hit the back button. Presto, draft created with no recipient specified. View the draft by hitting the menu button on your message list and selecting Drafts.

I didn't say it in the story, because I didn't feel it was the place for editorializing, but I'm with everyone here: that's like the Digg guy not getting out when the getting was good. Wasn't he offered nine figures a couple of years ago?

If people still give a shit about Angry Birds by the new year, we really will have hit the Apocalypse.

Maybe it's because I'm still on Froyo but in both the default messaging app and GO SMS Pro say "this message will be discarded because it contains no valid recipients. Continue or cancel". Still that's not really a fault in my book. I'm not in the habit of writing texts to nobody.

Most of the functionality I want from a smart phone is built-in: Internet browsing, 3G tethering, portable wifi hotspot, calender functionality, media playing, GPS... I really don't need it for anything else. In fact, I just did a factory reset on my phone, and I really don't plan on reinstalling anything but 3G Watchdog and 3 (Cubed, I don't feel like looking that up on the character map). Beyond that my laptop and handhelds do a much better job of anything I want to be done on-the-go.

Of course not. All phone games are terrible, and he knows this because he never buys any of them.

I bought quite a few. I don't really feel the need to have them on my phone anymore, since I never played them. They brought me no amusement, which was their only function. Beyond that: What else am I supposed to be buying and installing on my phone? What functionality am I missing that can be achieved in a reasonable fashion with an app?
