Popular != valuable.
I am not about to drudge through reams of crap to find value when I pay

I agree wholeheartedly. All I was suggesting is that a product like
XyboWAP (www.xybo.com) 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

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