It's difficult to believe this many people actually still listen to dave winer. He's done, old, and irrelevant. Sad to see people still listen to his drivel.

If you're trying to be as rude as Rush Limbaugh, you're getting close.

-----


Oh god. Stop with the hero worship. The guy is a verified lunatic living off a legacy that he helped build. If you'd stop kissing his ass for one minute you might see what a whacko he's become.

-----


I'm not involved in any hero worship at all. I'm saying that it's downright ridiculous to accuse Dave Winer of making a popularity play.

It's going to be low, because of the app itself. Seriously, if you've never used the app you might want to educate yourself before making such statements.

Limiting the number of possible friends means a smaller network, and a smaller user base.

That you "personally" don't use it means nothing.

Dead in the water? I sure wish we could make a bet on that.

-----


Let me know when they hit the all too critical mass.

-----


Lawyer? God, get a fucking grip. No wonder companies treat their users like morons.

-----


Because asking for advice from those wiser than oneself clearly makes one a moron.

-----


So it starts throttling at a half gig later? And you have to deal with crappy phones? Great deal you got there.

-----


At a third of the price. Price-to-value ratio is much better.

And while the LG Optimus Slider has a smallish screen, it still runs android 2.3. And with a slide-out keyboard, SSH sessions are a lot easier. It's "good enough."

Hey responded because you insulted him. Of course, you were right. Enough people hate dave winer that RSS does need a new face, but you, like a lot of writers, backed down when confronted with him. You should have stuck to your guns, because you were right.

-----


Ridiculous to even consider? What a ridiculous thing to say. There's plenty of other ways to stay in touch. You're using facebook, as is your friend. Don't pretend that without it you're out of the loop. It may take a little effort at first, but you could do it. Hyperbole doesn't help anyone.

Nonsense. We've been hearing apple is screwed for 10 years now. That's idiotic. Apple doesn't have to own the market, and if you believe the Galaxy S is going to convert iPhone fans, you're nuts.

-----


I was an iPhone fan until I got my Galaxy S. Don't I count? Do you want pictures of me holding both phones?

    Apple doesn't have to own the market
Are you sure you're replying to the right comment? Are you talking to me? What I find truly idiotic is the myopia (some) Apple fans are capable of.

-----


I'm a dev. I carry an iPhone 4 and a Galaxy S.

I hate the Galaxy S.

Disproven by counterexample.

-----


Comparing iphone 4 to Galaxy S is like comparing apples and oranges. Care to compare your iphone to Galaxy S2 ?

-----


No, it's still the same. Ugly, slow, and bloated.

-----


This is what's really killing it for me. If it wasn't so slow and bloated, I'd use it much more. Instead, I usually just pull out something quick like AstridTasks or another note program. Only the big stuff I save on evernote.

-----


I like Astrid, too. Very quick and light.
