Coolest plane ever.
Agreed. One of the reasons why I'm sticking with iPhone.
There is a point beyond which they are too big, I'll grant you that. My 5.5" phone does necessitate loose-fitting pants if I want to pocket it, and I certainly would not want a phone any bigger than this one.
Any fans of Marvin the Paranoid Android might find this song amusing. I just found it on YouTube.
It's so silly, but it's catchy. Sadly, it's out of print. There's a low-bitrate mp3 vinyl drop you can search for, but it's never been officially released in digital format. I HATE it when that sort of thing happens. I'm begging the people who own the rights to these things to take my money, and all they'd have to do to take it is run the master tape through some conversion hardware and upload a copy to Amazon MP3. Get the unpaid intern to do it as a practice project if you don't want to spend anything on it.
Confession....I'm over 40 and never read the book or saw the movie. When I saw "Marvin the Paranoid Android" in Argyris' post I was imagining Marvin the Martian singing a Radiohead song.

Seconded. That line about the deadlines is one of my all time favorites. I also like "The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't." I would say that the writing, far more than the plot, was the real draw for me. The introduction said that reading Douglas Adams will permanently rewire your brain, and I have to say it's true. I found myself finding the humor in everyday situations and commenting darkly on it far more often after I read the series. I also instinctively look for bizarre connections between things now, the way Adams clearly did. You know, the word "genius" is thrown around far too often these days, such that it's become cliche. Douglas Adams is one of the few people I actually think is deserving of the word.
In fact, because of all this I've just become inspired to read the series again. I'll have to fetch my copy off the shelf.
