Happy iPhone Launch Day....
« on: June 29, 2007, 02:35:21 PM »
Well, the big day is finally here. The day all… errr… some of us have been waiting for. I’m sure some of you are counting down the minutes and seconds until you can go marching into the Apple store to pick-up your very own iPhone. Wait, what am I thinking. If you really want an iPhone, you’re already in line. If you get one, we want stories. Maybe there wasn’t a line? Maybe you were the only lone sole standing outside the store before open? Or maybe it was like a day after Thanksgiving standing outside of Best Buy with a herd of hungry humans.
The day wouldn’t be complete without a dose of iPhone humor.
In case you haven’t heard, here are some of the iPhone’s most highly anticipated features:

    * Nanotechnology enables it to reassemble itself when thrown against wall
    * Exclusive link to Google Street View so you can watch yourself using your iPhone at all times
    * Takes Polaroids
    * When moved from hand to ear, makes Lightsaber sound effects
    * Prominent Apple logo
    * Reproduces through asexual budding
    * Has way, way more PRAM than the last thingy
    * Comes with an iPhone hat, so people know you own an iPhone during the brief periods you’re not using it

Not for those of us in the UK, September or October I think. But this is one end user who won't be getting one, too expensive, two years contract, too many functions I will never use. I already have a phone that does what I want of it, make and receive phone calls.

Some nutters by all accounts have been camping out for four days waiting for this launch.

For me, it's just another big money making hype.
They want to make the money and we're supposed to cough it up...  ;D

The best price I found was $599.00
For that price, I can buy a pretty good computer and make FREE phone calls....  ;D

Now that explains it all Frank.
Not only do you get to spend $600.00 for the iPhone
but, you also get to throw away your iPod since that feature is built in.
I guess if I get one of these, I can even throw away my computer
cause that's also built in.  ;D ;D

Probably when it arrives in the UK we'll have to pay £600 for it, as you Yanks conveniently forget the exchange rate when flogging stuff to us Brits.  ::)

How can we forget when you Limeys are always reminding us of how much more you have to pay than we do?  ;D ::)

I guess when we stop getting ripped off ??? then we won't be complaining about it, then you might be able to forget.

Nobody in this forum is ripping off our Brit friends.  I made a friendly come back to FWF as I remember a few posts about you having to pay more.  Your representatives in your government are who you should complain to.
