Ah, but the case I'm trying to make is that, no matter how elegant and
simple Apple could make it, a useless feature is still a useless feature.
And cameras, calendars, IMing, games, e-mail, and all that are useless
features on a phone. I don't need or even want any of that extraneous crud,
which is one reason I hang on to my 5 year old cell -- it's getting hard to
find a cell phone nowadays that doesn't have all the non-essential garbage
on it.
