email snobbery

I think it started with Blackberry users, could have been the Treo.  Now I have to see it from all the folks with iPhones.  I've always hated seeing the auto signature of how the email was sent.  Typically it looks like this:

Some Dude
---------
Sent from my iPhone

Except I always read it like this:


Obnoxious Braggart
------------------
Sent from my insanely expensive iPhone that I love more than my family whilst on the deck of my yacht.
Neener, neener, neener.
PS. This was sent from the Grand Cayman Islands.
PPS. Did I mention this was sent from an iPhone?


OK, maybe I'm just jealous.  But what reason really is there to say how it was sent other than to brag?  Apologizing perhaps for how short the responses usually are?
