True. But then again, the Japanese have a lot of relatively poorly paid

I think that WAP is a classic case of overdesign. An excellent
comparison for WAP vs. i-mode is probably ISO/OSI vs. TCP/IP. I remember
Marshall Rose saying, a little over a decade ago, that ISO/OSI was going
to be the protocol of the 90s. Well, it still is. :-)
