eh, it depends. It's an avenue of art, so you could compare it to graffiti or charcoal drawings.
Sure, there are at least 70% of them that are basically warpaint in another form, 20% that resemble something more than warpaint but are forgettable, then there are the 10% that are basically the persons inner being personified as art outside.

THANK you. There are so many people I hear say stuff like "Oh, cancer has already been cured, they're just holding the vaccine back from us" or "I'm waiting for the cancer pill to come out".

About as bright as waiting for the pill to stop death.

You can't carry all of those items along with you, and still have the same convenience. You're not going to talk on your kindle, your not going to read on your iphone (well you can, but it's a very small screen for that), and you're not going to whip out your laptop as you stop at a traffic light or eat lunch at a diner between appointments. Well you can, but the convenience factor is gone in seconds.

You can talk on an iPad, using Google Voice and an earpiece. Basically obsoletes a phone when you carry it.

I'm going to guess you can do the same stuff on an android tablet, as well, but I can't speak from experience.

It's all in your point of view, really.
