I've been reading through the archives at Joelonsoftware.com (which isn't for everyone, but makes for damn good reading if you're a hard-core computer nerd), and I happened across Joel's review of an LG cell phone that was also an mp3 player from back in 2006. It would be fair to say that it's one of the most stinging, hilarious reviews of anything that I've ever read. Thus, dear readers, I share it with you:

"In the meantime, if, say, hypothetically, you were pausing because you live in a country where the police brutalize people, and a policeman was brutalizing you, and you wanted to stop the music so you could try to figure out what the policeman wanted and perhaps there was some way if you could just hear him that you could get him to stop beating you with a riot bat, you’re already DEAD by the time you figure out how to make the pause button actually pause."

Incidentally, if you're at all interested in reading well-written, highly-knowledgeable articles about programming, customer service tips, how to interview/be interviewed, nuances of ancient software code, themes of design, and anything else under the sun that's supremely nerdy, you should check out Joel's stuff.
