iPhones are squabby

Even more confirmation that I, as a squab, should be an iPhone owner: this NYT article reviewing some of the many new apps available for iPhones as of this Friday, includes the following one:

Urbanspoon, [which] is “a cross between a magic eight ball and a slot machine:" you shake the phone, and it randomly displays the name of a good restaurant nearby, using the iPhone’s G.P.S. and motion sensor.

OMGponiesnrainbowz!!!1!! That, my friends, is a squabby app. Which I will be using frequently, even if I can't go out to dinner very often.

In case you're interested, I'd nominate the Razr for squinny mobile phone, and the Blackberry for squotund. But I'm open to correction/suggestion.
