I hated web forums when they started becoming popular having been a user of Usenet for many years. In fact, it coincided with me becoming much more of a consumer of information than a contributor. For all it's flaws, Outlook Express allowed me to skim through and keep track of complex threads and the extra baggage was minimal. A return to the briefness of Usenet and intelligent quoting (e.g. if somebody block quotes, only shown the first line with option to expand all) would be welcomed here.

>Your approach encourages this. I hate this blog post. Sorry. I'm with you on this. Having switched recently from a Windows Mobile phone to an Android one with a very similar hardware specification (same speed CPU for sure), the responsiveness of the HTC is so fluid compared to WMP. I am in admiration for the Android developers (and I suppose Linux) for a non-bloated system. The WMP team tried to shoehorn a big memory approach into a small device. One bit advantage of the smartphone surge is that it's refocussed attention on performance which is closely tied to using memory correctly.
And despite the launch of the iPad, I'd still got for a device like this in preference.
