I saw that pic, and thought it was cool... until a notice it's... mirrored.

And I say mirrored in it's defence.

What I mean is, it looks like he's playing a left handed guitar, right handed. It should be the other way around.

I wish I didn't notice things like that, and that it didn't bother me. And I wish I could do art half as good.

The tuning pegs are all wrong (for one thing there's 5 of them...one on the other side? That style head is supposed to have 3 on each sode), but otherwise it's a normal right handed guitar. Realism aside, that image turns me on in groovy ways, more than it should.

Well, the body is correct for Hendrix--a lefty playing a right-handed guitar, but yeah the headstock is all messed up--a Gibson style head (eight strings?? or a 4 +2??) on a Stratocaster?

A lot of things have hidden swastikas in them. Like most carpet patterns. Or milk crates.

It shouldn't matter.

It's intended to be an anti-Samsung photo, but the whole industry did this, not just Samsung.

About the only way to tell a phone apart these days is by how thick the bezels are.

The bottom right of the "before" photo is actually pretty close to the top left of the "after" just not black. Compared to the other "before" ones, it's got a big screen, no keyboard, a home button, etc.

Might as well be "before Android" and "after Android."

Nope, some of those devices were actually running Android. Not many people remember it, but at one time Android required several physical keys, including those navigation buttons. Android did a complete 180 after iOS was revealed and became a touch-only OS.

Apple shifted the entire market towards touch-only interfaces with minimal physical buttons in 2007 and it hasn't ever gone back. That's how important the first iPhone was.

Which is rather unfortunate, because I would love to see some innovation in devices like you saw before. I know it's a pipe dream, but I used to love those pop-out QWERTY keyboards, for example.

I'm on the fence. I think the BlackBerry Key2 looks pretty nice, but I'm happy with my chinese clone phone.
