Best mobile phone review ever

Charlie Brooker, writing in the Guardian, really didn't like his new mobile phone.

My new mobile is lumbered with a bewildering array of unnecessary features aimed at idiots

And that's just the column title.

BoingBoing is where I found the story, but that's only a snippet. For your full daily requirement of vitriol, you have to read the whole article at the Guardian.

Interestingly, for all the complaints about this phone, I have a Samsung myself. It's old. Makes phone calls, the battery lasts about a week and I can drop it on concrete with total confidence that it's not going to break, and cost me the princely sum of $150 about 3 years ago. Perfect.
