For my use case and work/lifestyle, the native Google Voice app totally makes this phone (and the 3 other Androids I've had). Apple are total shmucks for not yet approving GV on the iPhone-- that 1 app is enough to lose a user like me.

Hey, keep Springsteen out of this! I'd rave about him any day. And I am a hip dude. Dig it?

This essay, verbatim, would get you admitted to Harvard Business School! Not that you'd necessarily find that useful at this point.

Spot on, as usual, DMC. An issue here is most entreps can't separate themselves enough from their offering to take such constructive criticism, at least not in real time and in public. It's like saying their kid is ugly. But as long as you were rudely interjecting, and telling them to try again, what about instead taking at least one and with their permission, say, "here's how *I* would do it..."? In fact, such a before and after example as an adjunct to this post might help, eg: "how they said it" vs "the Pitch the Problem way to say it", etc.
I've seen you ride and can attest it's 1 of your many skills !

On the structural elements of this post: The post is remarkable because you can the gist of the message from reading *only* the headings. The second sentence/subtitle in italics could actually be all you need to see (so really the whole article could have been Twittered!) Then, the headings communicate the story if you don't have time to read, don't know Auren (altho probably no one is in that category), etc. More writings should be like this. tip: offer the MacBook Air to the biz types, but not to the super-developers-- they will all want a MacBook instead. I'm finding this out myself.

what a tease! the pic is not closeup enough so we can read the legend (should we assume + = positive??) It makes me almost as sad as the fact that you got a Kindle1 instead of Kindle2! (used one today, it's fantastic)
