Kim du Toit Shares His Love of iPhones

Okay, so you buy this magical new appliance with which you are going to run your entire life, communicate with others, communicate on the Intarweb, listen to music, live by the built-in calendar/scheduler… ...until the batteries run down.

Read the whole thing, it's kind of funny.

El Duderino, the Luddite. Here's an idea! If you don't want an iPhone, don't get one. Problem solved.

El Duderino said...

Since all the Luddites are dead, wouldn’t that make me a Neo-Luddite? Besides, I love technology. I just prefer the tried, true and useful over the novel, trendy and masturbatory.

zaphod said...

That's not true. You love the masturbatory. Why else would you keep posting about a gadget you have no intention of buying.

El Duderino said...

Not to make you go bonkers or anything, but I may purchase one in few years after my current phone plan expires, the bugs have been worked out, AT&T discovers their ass with both hands and a road map and the price drops.
Of course by then it won't be cool anymore.

We already went over this. Cool has nothing to do with any of this. The device itself may be cool. But having something that a million other people already have isn't cool. Hype is the opposite of cool.

As for AT&T getting their act together, well, in 5 years they won't have an exclusive to sell the iPhone. In other words, they don't really have any choice. Once people can run this thing on other networks, AT&T will lose a lot of the customers they just gained, if they don't make their network better.

And the price will drop. It always does. When you can get a 20 gig iPhone for $300 that's when I'm jumping in.
