I've been abstaining from comments on this whole WAP craze, but what
can it be good for, given size-dictated dinky displays and keyboards
in cellphones? Unless somebody adds a Private Eye type of display to
the units (which will look weird, and is not very usable, holding your
gadget to the eye closely is a strain and a social nuisance, then
rather wait for headups), it looks highly pathetic.
