Congratulations Ericsson!

When restarting after a software crash, the Sony Ericsson P990 smart phone will print the following message:

Your phone has restarted in order to improve performance.

Best. Idea. Ever. This not only gives you a perfectly sound explanation why you lost that email you were typing for the last 5 minutes on the tiny keyboard but also gives you a warm fuzzy feeling that your phone is now even better than before. Everyone knows that you have to restart your computer when it starts feeling slow, right? So obviously this phone detects that it is slowing down ever before you notice and restarts itself. Great!

I bet that the engineer that came up with that message got a big promotion.
