The future is now. Unfortunately, the future is now in Korea, a land filled with a fine people and such, don't get me wrong, but a land that is also, clearly, not right here in my apartment. So with Samsung's introduction of a new 3-megapixel cameraphone, the SPH-2300, we Westerners have all been apparently flung backwards into the past, which is cool from a 'countdown to death' perspective, but otherwise, you know, I'd rather just have my 3-megapixel cameraphone -- especially one with optical zoom, miniSD slot, and built-in flash.
Japan used to be the land of tomorrow, now it's Korea. Given my robust personal connections to Korea, I feel a certain (adoptive) filial pride here.
