...to see the Renault Megane up top, biggest pile of misery i've ever owned!

I used to sell lots through eBay, but recently it has been a 'now and again' thing. I've literally sold a couple of CD's and a bag over the last month, and i'm surprised to find I now owe eBay £20, what a rip off! I'm closing the account very shortly, but i'm sure it (or a competitor) could be a success again with a different (ie less money-grabbing) model.
From the beginnings of WAP to the current efforts to bring the 'real' web to our phones, it has been clear that accessing web information on a mobile handset is slow, buggy and more often than not, an utterly frustrating waste of time. Its almost as painful as trying to play games on your phone (ie: an activity that is not what the handset was designed to do! (ergonomically speaking)).
The last few mobiles i've owned have been awful, as they've been slowed down by hosting crap software that noone will use more than once - for example, a PDF viewer (on a 5" screen, wtf?), and thus taking ten seconds to open a text message (i'm glaring at you, Nokia N70)
