Hey all, Well, the much anticipated Apple iHype…er, I mean…iPhone releases tonight, and I can sum up my near frantic anticipation with two words….WHO CARES?
No, I’m not blogging this morning from a sleeping-bag on some chilly sidewalk outside the Apple store. A new Star Wars movie might elicit that kind of fanaticism, but not an over-priced, over-hyped phone.
At $600 and STILL requiring a two year contract, I’m going to have to say, “No thanks, Stevie…”
I think I’ll stick to my Palm Treo at a quarter the price, and stay home and watch “The Star Wars Holiday Special” tonight. Still, I do have to ask, even if they have the money to blow… WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE THINKING?
Quick lesson from recent history…it’s a first release! It’s going to be buggy, and product support won’t be up-to-snuff on training yet!
Can we remember a little thing called the iPod? This phone is going to be patched, upgraded, and down-priced at least three times in the next year or so! People are going to be screaming that tech support is clueless, and everyone else is going to get a GREAT deal on competing products! (I know I did!)
Okay, well great! Now I’m all awake and everything, I might as well head down to Starbucks and buy 342.85714 (that was for you, AV) venti coffees with the money I saved.
PS – You know that the REAL questions here are…does Paris Hilton have one yet and, if not, who’s standing in line for HER?
