Broken: Samsung cell phone message
I got the message below when I wanted to delete a demo game from my Samsung C417 cell phone:
"All the JAR files will be deleted. A
re you sure you wa
nt to delete?"
This message is broken for two reasons.
One, most people probably don't know what JAR files are, so how can they be sure they want to delete them?
Two, there's really no excuse for not supporting word wrapping nowadays - "A re" and "wa
nt" break the reading flow, making you read them at least twice to get what they're saying.
