"WAP sucks. WAP devices suck. Anybody with the initials "WAP" sucks. A
capital "W" next to a capital "A" even kerns badly. WAP-enabled devices
(and the acronym menagerie that goes along with them) combine the
rock-solid reliability of the Internet with the rock-solid reliability of a
cell phone. Plus per-minute usage charges, the elegant legibility of a
calculator wristwatch and the handy convenience of a portable sink for
hand-washing obsessive-compulsives. The act of offering WAP as a "feature"
rather than "some sort of extravagant expression of self-hatred" should be
considered fraud."
