not popular = users don't know
popular = users know
very popular = many users know

Popular != valuable?
I think the Internet would not be as valuable today if it never became
popular! ??

Popular != valuable.

I am not about to drudge through reams of crap to find value when I pay
minute and have to peck out information on a 10 digit keypad. In this
I truly believe less is more.

I agree wholeheartedly. All I was suggesting is that a product like
XyboWAP ( would greatly help in making WAP valuable to the
end user, because it will make it more popular... wouldn't you agree?

>WAP doesn't lack value, it lacks the ability to show people what value
can (and does) add.

But the onus is not on WAP to make itself known, it is on the business'
that have WAPsites.
And a product like XyboWAP ( will put more business' on the
WAP scene.

More local business' having WAPsites = more business' promoting WAP =
more end users using WAP for daily lives = more end users promoting WAP.
