WAP, Bam, No Thank You, Ma’am: “WAP apologists compare the state of the service today with the Internet-at-large in 1994. But the Internet-at-large in 1994 was a smallish lab experiment, a physicist-ruled backwater inhabited by people willing to wear hip-waders to get around. WAP - in all its awful glory - is being offered up as a mainstream consumer service, something that grandma can use, by providers too stupid or greedy to know they’re gibbering incompetents.”
