Precisely my view on all the noise being made by clueless iPhone newbies that don’t know the first thing about what has been going on for the last six years or so on the mobile web and start spurting out gibberish like it being some kind of “wild frontier” or a “hybrid” of design approaches.
Again, people who don’t know history (or who let an entire industry pass them by and have yet to understand it) are doomed to repeat it – and, in this environment, that is especially true if they happen to be high as kites on gadget-induced endorphins.
Which seems to be the case for anyone in the US who grabs an iPhone these days. Except, of course, those who blog about the faults they find with the device for the five whole seconds before their site is swamped by “zealots”:Wikipedia:Zealotry and rumor mongers.
Welcome to the mobile world, iPhone newbies – do make an effort to catch up on what the rest of the planet has been doing, will ya?
