All Your Mobile Devices Are Belong to Us

I can't figure out why publications that are geared toward writers and editors consistently have such terrible writing and editing.

This is from a newsletter for writers: "Who hasn't heard of mobile devices such as cell phones and PDAs these days? Whether phone calls, or just checking a brief weather update, chat with online pals, playing games in spare time, these trendy, digital gadgets can provide a variety of functions."

Ugh! That's horrible. Maybe someone should write them in a language they'll understand:

"You newsletter needing work and some editeding, whether writing by you crack team of professional writer, wording by free lancers, or wrote by grade schoolers."

Then again, maybe this just bugs me as well because I just finished reading Lynne Truss's Eats, Shoots and Leaves.
