A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

Listen to some of the complaints
"Uninstalling is too hard."
"The iPhone has 1 button, this has 4."
"I felt excitement over the iPhone launch because my friends discussed apps."
"The warnings it gives me before installing an app make me think twice."
We shouldn't even respond to this thread anymore because we are likely giving the author of that article extra traffic to his website.
Probably some sycophantic little hipster who adoooores the iPhone and all things Apple. The simplicity of the iPhone is its biggest failing for us. What you describe as "too hard" is really just a side effect of greater choice and freedom in customizing and altering every aspect of the phone, even down to the base code. Viva la Evolucion!
"12. Call quality doesn't seem as good as on the iPhone-AT&T."
WHAT?! Are you HIGH?! You're the ONLY PERSON IN THE ENTIRE WORLD who has said this. EVERY other person -- even the most RABID Apple fanboi (I'm specifically thinking of Brian Tong on CNet.com) has said the Droid's call quality BLOWS AWAY the iPhone-AT&T.
And his #16 complaint (the one about the battery cover) -- maybe he should try, I don't know, READING A DROID FORUM once in a while? This is a known issue with the early Droids, and Motorola will fix it FOR FREE!
The only complaint of his that I find even remotely legitimate is the #5 complaint (back-button is ambiguous.) This is true, because some apps actually seem to use the back button as an exit button. But that's really a fault of the app developers, not the Droid in and of itself. Within the Droid's pre-installed apps the back-button is fairly standard.
Oh, and of course his #14 complaint (not being able to talk and use 3G Internet at the same time) is legit, too. But that's Verizon's network, not the Droid specifically...
Heck, just about all his complaints could be addressed by coming to this forum and spending a little time reading... He really should try that some time...
EDIT: And the one thing it seems he missed is the lack of Bluetooth-activated voice-dialing. That's honestly my ONLY major gripe with the Droid, and it didn't even get a mention by him... Crazy...
