Continuing On The Angry Theme

List of people to push off the edge of the earth when I find the edge:

Those who refer to their iPhone as their ‘iPhone’ instead of calling it A PHONE. Because that just wouldn’t make you sound important enough would it?

Don’t get me wrong – I like iPhones and let me also partially excuse Wil out of this equation since he has no less than 3 phones on the go (it’s hard to keep up with a harem of women with one line of communication). Until now he called them ‘work phone’/’home phone’ but now the iPhone has arrived ‘work phone’ and ‘home phone’ have been added to by ‘iPhone’. Using it as a description to differentiate it from others of the same ilke, acceptable. Pointing it out just so you can mention you have one = FAIL.

For a good example of what I’m urking about, see here: http://www.dooce.com/daily-style/2009/10/22/small-clutch-and-wristlet

I know, I’ve just stooped low enough to slag off another blogger. I apologise – I like that blog and that person… it’s this name branding fad thing and she happens to do it a lot with her PHONE.

Anyway, as soon as I’ve finished my Scotts I’m rockin’ the Mazda down to Ipswich for a meeting. Catch me on my Blackberry you muthas.

    Catch you on my Samsung doesn’t quite have the same smug appeal does it? Am I the only person in the world who just has a mobile?

    It’s in the contract isn’t it? Thou hast purchased an Apple product, thou shalt mention it by name at all possible moments.

    (Just don’t mention that you had to jail-break it to make it useful..)
