Peter Wilson from the CanWest News Service decides to take all the complaints we have had about the iPhone and wrap it up in a nice little package. How convenient! Thanks Peter!
Some complaints like FairPlay and Cingular exclusivity, and cost are commonplace. But this article touches upon a new thing that I have not considered — how the touch screen interface will be a big fat PITA for those who are visually impaired.

Aww yeah, why wait until June spending half your bank when you can roll with your own iPhone right now, paper style. “Brilliance” is the only word I can muster as the tears roll down my face at the gorgeous sight of my very own paper phone. You can print, cut, and fold too courtesy of Sneakmove.
They even have an editable illustrator file so you can pimp zee iPhone. That’s how we roll!
