WAP sucks (on suck)

The evolution of the wireless application protocol or "WAP," the method
that most cellular devices use to communic ate with the Internet from
long-touted pipe dream to widely released technology promises to be a profit
windfall for the telecommunications industry largely because anybody uses
the damned thing will have to replace their phone, once they smash it to
bits in frustration. Heralded as the Second Coming of the Internet, WAP is
an unmitigated disaster a half-finished, half-assed service
enthusiastically targeted at mainstream consumers without the reliability,
convenience or price that those silly mainstream consumers have foolishly
come to expect.
