In Cell phone adventures John D. Carmack II, co-founder of id Software and creator of such title as Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake extolls the vitrues of developing software for mobile phones.

I’m not a cell phone guy. I resisted getting one at all for years, and even now I rarely carry it. To a first approximation, I don’t really like talking to most people, so I don?t go out of my way to enable people to call me. However, a little while ago I misplaced the old phone I usually take to Armadillo, and my wife picked up a more modern one for me. It had a nice color screen and a bunch of bad java game demos on it. The bad java games did it.
