You know, for a guy who owns both a high end PC and a Mac, I just adore my Mac. It is smooth, intuitive, and easy to get along with. It likes me. I like it. It’s all good. Honestly, if I wasn’t a gaming dork, I’d probably only own a Mac and be done with it. However, that being said, I want the iPhone to fail.
Huh. Now, that is weird. After all, shouldn’t I be some sort of apologist, seeking, nay, demanding every possible opportunity to validate Apple’s “Switch” campaign!? Nope. Just not feeling it. Perhaps the iPhone is too good for it’s own good. Too stylish. Perhaps I don’t want to pay the $175 to dump my contract in favor of moving to a new provider.
Truth be told, as the hours and days since the iPhone launch have churned under the bridge, my heart has been lightened by consumers complaining about a four hour battery life, of consumers complaining about the on screen keyboard, and of consumers ranting about the horrible network (AT&T) backing the phone. Of course, as a friend of mine put it, “Wait two years and they’ll have something five times better.” I completely agree. Kinda falls into the old, “Never buy the first model year of any car — they are still working out the kinks and you’re paying for the privilege to participant in the test market.”
Uh-huh. No thanks. I’ll catch next year’s model.
