    Default SI.com: Peter King hates the storm, give me an iPhone!

    If Peter Kings says so, it must be true so there. No one can argue against my post whatsoever so don't even try. In Peter's MMQB edition he talks about what he thinks of the Storm. He even let his thoughts known to the guy who invented the Storm's keyboard...

    a. I give up on the Black Berry Storm. I was seduced into buying it when it was The Next Big Thing, but the weird and hard-to-use keyboard should make it the Edsel of mobile phone and e-mail devices.
    b. Incredibly, I sat behind the man who invented the hard-to-use keyboard of the Storm at Fenway one day when I was off ... and ended up telling him what I thought of the keyboard. A tad awkward, but someone's got to address how hard it is to hit each key just so when you're trying to send a text. I need those upraised letters.

    Ok, so he doesn't like SurePress. So what? Not everyone has to like the Storm. Just like not everyone has to like [insert Phone X here] for a variety of reasons.

    It seems like just from the wording that he bought it just for the hype. Don't know if he did any actual research into it, but he should have.

    The question I have is why did he wait until now (8 months later) to find out he didn't like the keyboard? It's hardware and not something that software could have changed. Couldn't he have figured it out it wasn't for him after maybe a week or so?

    That was my first thought! Who is this person and why should his opinion make up my mind for me?

    Some random sports enthusiest with an SI column made a small side-note that he personally doesn't like the SurePress! I must heed his random word and toss my Storm because it doesn't work for him!

    Oh, and OP, where exactly does he say he needs an iPhone? "Upraised letters" could just as well mean a physical keyboard.

    Calling Peter King a random assshat is along the lines of treason.

    Anyway, the touchscreen isn't for everyone. If that's his only gripe then he should just get a Curve or something...he won't be much happier with an iPhone.

    Peter king talks about sports all day. So that makes him a tech god or something. OP you are a serious troll and need to stop posting BS like this. If you and Peter king hate the storm or Suretype than move the **** on.

    Look at the man, when you've got fingers the size of Johnsonville Brats, it's no wonder he might have trouble with a keyboard.

    I am in complete agreement with you. Peter King has become one of the worst writers and openly talks about his favorites and he never shuts up about his coffee as if he owned a freaking coffee shop.
