I know, I know. I'm a victim of marketing hype.
I decided to wait a while. I coveted the iPhone but by waiting a while I could feel less like a shallow materialist. So I waited.
The first generation iPhone came and went (that thing was really expensive). And then the 3G iPhone came out. Better, faster, cheaper (what's not to love).
But I still waited.
And then one day Tab tells me she wants a new phone to replace her old Razor. We go to the store and buy her a Blackberry. I almost got one but I wasn't eligible for an upgrade yet. So I waited. I can't believe I almost settled for a Blackberry.
I went back a few weeks later. Still not eligible. So I waited some more.
My eligibility date came and went. I continued to wait, proud that I had such strong self-control. And then I folded like a cheap suit.
Now I have to figure the thing out. It does connect with my wireless network at home which is pretty cool.
