are you sure those electrons actually came from that particular power plant?
and that it wasn't originally built to send power somewhere else, and the power just happened to be redirected to you because it was more convenient to do so and build a coal-fired electric plant closer to 'somewhere else'?

Um, did you research the incident he mentioned?

One small part of the grid failed, and that had a cascading effect on the surrounding parts of the grid, and the result was a problem WAY bigger than what most anybody in the power industry would publicly admit to being possible from the original event.

Yes, that's exactly why nobody buys iPhones [all models]. The technical specs are inferior to competing devices.

Anyway, your 2005 HTC Universal dimensions (from http://www.jawal123.com/-1108609633/en-us/htc-universal)
128mm × 81mm × 25 mm = 259 cubic centimeters

2007 iPhone dimensions (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPhone)
115x61x11.6mm = 81.3 cubic centimeters

less than 1/3 the volume of your HTC Universal

that's why RIM's engineers couldn't believe. Stuffing that much stuff in that small a package, nevermind the software.

back then it wasn't. other phones at the time might have had better specs on specific items, nobody was making a similar item, particularly with those physical dimensions.
