We appreciate the hybrid builders efforts. But be honest, Lyricidal et al are spending their time and talent trying to get the phone to work as advertised because as YOU said "RIM dropped the ball". There it is in your own words, from a fan of the Storm. End of argument!
Tuners on the other hand are taking machines that ALREADY work as advertised, and put their efforts into improving their performance for the fun of it. (Same for over clockers in the comp world) I've owned 3 civics my self and I would never compare those machines to a Storm. That is a serious insult to Honda.
Further, you should beware of assumptions, you assume I have not tried the hybrids. You state that people like me are a detriment to the world because you think we are not pushing the envelope. You trust you know the old addage about "assuming."
At any rate, My modded SV1000 will smoke the turbo civcc, Mustang and almost anything on 4 wheels, so there.

If you have used the hybrids and still think the Storm is not a solid performer you're just ridiculous. It'll never be a speed demon or have 256 MB of memory but for what it is it can be modified to get to a very good level and once there I wouldn't trade it for the crap that's out now. I'll either wait for the S3 or the new Windows Phone 7s.
P.S. Big LOL @ you saying my comparison is stupid, then turning around and saying your motorcycle will beat those cars in a race. LMAO.

Family was travelling out of country just last week. My wifey had to replace her phone so I lent her my 9700 meantime while she visited her side of the family. I was starting to have BB Withdrawal so sifting through Craigs found a Storm 9530 for $140.00 same city I was staying.
I had a Storm 1 (9500) when initially release for a couple weeks though had quickly replaced it with a Bold 9000. Though having it second time in my hand and having OS 5.0 (came with hybrid 497 though downgraded to 419 official, have/had no problems with either), i'm having second thoughts switching back to my 9700 now.
Again, on travel and unfortunately my BIS service is not functional where I am, so basing this on regular phone calls, light texting and media only.
Will give it a shot on my return and see if I can go through a work day gunning through those countless business emails and BBM chats. That'll be a whole other story.
Just food for thought.
P.S. It's nice to have the big screen, and recent OS's did make an improvement.
Maybe what I really need is a 9800 to have both worlds. LOL!

Well for me the Storm is hit or miss but I haven't loaded the latest leak yet since my BBSAK doesn't want to recognize the phone even though Windows 7 does. Anyway, if you are interested I can sell you my storm for $125 with all the original packaging minus the ear buds. The phone is in 9/10 condition. Just let me know!
