sorry, don't remember it, but I disagree.  I'm pretty old (b. 1953) and
sometimes younger people think they get something that really isn't that
impressive.  I have an android phone and I like it, but as a phone,
compared to phones that sit on a desk it totally sucks.

And then there was the pet rock!

happy new year!
