QUOTED

From my old Treo, to my BlackBerry, to this new iPhone, I had a hard time hitting the right buttons, and I always lost those little styluses.

And what it’s saving me in frustration–that’s priceless.”

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
