Leslie Katz is "an associate editor [at CNet] who focuses on personal technology," but seems *amazed* that mobile phones can cost $500 and have memory cards. My goodness!
In her latest "Gadget Blog" post about Jimmy Buffet's lost Sony Ericsson mobile, Leslie breathlessly recounts that a bus boy who found the phone may have crank called Bill Clinton, "whose number was stored in the $500 phone's directory," and warns there might be more phone calls coming since, "Apparently, the fancy phone's memory card with the names, numbers and some addresses" is still missing. Emphasis mine.
Astounding. For some reason this rubbed me the wrong way - just the snarkiness and ignorance of it. Could someone at CNet please give this woman a decent mobile phone and tell her to get a clue? Thanks.
