You've won my vote for troll, too.

On the upside though, I'm definitely interested in the possibilities
of using VoIP with bluetooth for home/office, which I wasn't before
this thread started - handy? Yes. Cost-effective? Yes. Revolutionary?
Debatable, but let's not -- I'm upset that the Neo won't come with a
bunch of magical time pixies who transmogrifiy new paradigms into
productivity quanta.. but since I'll have to wait until v2.0 at least
for that, there's no point complaining endlessly about the magical
pixie-less v1.0!
