Buy the device, hate the network


Returning my Sidekick. It is amazing to me how many times people just want to love their device like the new Danger, but the network just gets in the way. Sounds like Matt needs to look up C|net where they mainly talk about the network it is running on, so it is not just T-mobile

Fundamentally all these devices seem to be designed with the assumption that there is an always-on network. It is amazing to me that only Blackberry gets this right and then only for mail. Somewhere there needs to be a disconnected client model where the server talks to a store on the client and the client can run disconnected. We talked about this three years ago when we started Ignition and it just has never happened. Maybe 2003?
