Would that have qualified for the Beaters under $1,500 thread?

Somehow I doubt a BMW with an autotragic transmission gets 35 MPG.

Okay I like really ****ing hate cell phones. And I'm one of them damn Millennials who everyone likes to complain about.

Cell phones are too small to see easily and they hurt my hands when I hold them and they just encourage the user to swipe and click constantly and they make you feel bad.

I work in ecommerce, I basically run our website, and like we HAVE to have a mobile option because that's the way **** works these days, but it's really hard to make things function properly on someone's tiny iPoop screen. And you can't really give the user all the information they need, or like if you do they just scroll past it. People buying our products often times need to read the damn product descriptions to understand the benefits//limitations of what they're getting but it's too easy to scroll by or just consciously decide not to read it because it's tiny and hard on your eyes on a phone. You're just not setting yourself up for success if you're trying to read the pocket version of the internet.

Cell phones hurt your hands?

Has anyone else had this issue?

Yes whenever I try to type on them my hands like start to get sore after a while. I'm fairly tall (6'2") so my hands are correspondingly large.

I am only kind of tall (6'2"), but I have never experienced this, I just do not understand why anyone uses phones if they have a computer available, and feel especially baffled when people ask "Why don't you just use your phone?!"

I think that my phone is a good size, but I need to hold it four inches from my face for it to appear as big as my 24" monitor when I sit at my desk, and I can input far faster with a keyboard and mouse than with swype.

I amazed that I bought my desktop three and a half years ago for less than many people pay for cellphones and they probably traded in already.

I spent less on my Accord than almost anyone spends on a cell phone and I have had it for two years and nine months.

Damn! That thing is museum spec! I bet if you bought this thing, reconditioned the battery, and held it for five years Toyota would probably buy it back from you.
