At first I thought that definition of "SIG" said "special interest group." Put that together with the definition of "marion" and it sounds a lot like how most American politicians are perceived. (And I say that as a candidate for the California state legislature. )

Yeah, I double-checked the source webpage (Softbank Creative)
It's Special Internet Group.

I'm sure it was thinking about Special Interest Group as well... Who knows.

P.S.

I think a new sort of measurement of how much a product is worth globally is to compare a day's average wage in a target country with a price of the latest iPhone in that country. (note, the latest varies from location to location)

Also a new index can be made making correlation with it with Gold / Platinum / Crude Oil.

Just my thoughts.

You're being awfully hard on it, Rich. I used to browse quite happily on my Sig 3 not many years ago.

Maybe you Americans don't get it, but there is this thing called "Shokunin-Tamashii" - or "Meister" as one may call it in Deutsch.
- anyway, improve improve improve, or "Kai" as in "Kai-zou" or modify-make.

The 900c is even worse Stingraze, because of the screen footprint. Modern day websites with popups and animation simple overpower our CE handhelds.

Give me the old time websites with text and simple jpg images only...no Flash or animation or other graphic formats...

You need to program yourself a website reducer / compressor, as in stripping all unneeded elements. Maybe compress image to black and white. haha
