Seems like every conversation last week had some component of "So Bruce, are you going to get an iPhone?" in it. Now I fully admit I have an unhealthy love for my MackBook and I am a card carrying member of the Mac Cult, but for some reason(s) the iPhone just doesn’t yank my apple.
Here are a couple reasons:
- $500 freaking dollars. Yes, yes, as a over-consuming American, where do I get off diggin’ on the cost? Because if I had $500+ bucks of play money, I would send my booty to Hawaii.
- I already have a loptop. And despite the conventional wisdom that I NEVER unplug, I do when I am not in front of my ‘puter. I don’t have a crackberry or palm device, my phone rarely gets used for anything other than the whole talking thing and well, I do like to unplug sometimes.
- Sprint owns me. *sigh*
Now of course, I may change my mind later, especially if the cost comes down, AT&T decides to play nice, and the bugs are worked out, but until that day, I will remain a mobile phone luddite.
