Everbody gets what you are saying. It is you who does not understand
that it is largely irrelevant, because everybody already is in favour
of having wifi at some point. The question is not about the "plus"
side of having wifi, but the question is with dealing with the costs
of adding wifi to 1st generation device, which completely flies past

What different view? As I said everybody is in favour of having wifi,
that's not the debate. The debate should be about weighing the cost
and benefit of having wifi in the 1st gen. device. But all you do is
keep on talking about how great an enabler wifi would be, and then go
off on tangents about "VOIP over WiFI -. great feature or greatest
feature?"... any you never even responded to any of the many points
made that explain why getting wifi later is a better of course of
action for the overall project (the software platform, remember?).

+1 irony

The only issue I have is with your utterly pointless and unproductive
whining that is clogging the list.
