I think it's safe to say that Henry's frustration with the iphone this evening is a mutual feeling among iphone owners.
I have likened it to an abusive relationship. I find myself justifying the fact that ALL iphone owners have to go to the apple store to get their iphone repaired and not to their service provider for, well, really anything. Therefor everyone has to make an appointment or wait about 3 hours in a store just swarming with people and gadgets. But this is okay because it's the iphone. Or the fact that no matter when you buy your iphone, that version will be obsolete before your contract expires, requiring you to finagle a way into getting the new one, waiting with your dinosaur version until your contract is up and you get to upgrade at a lesser cost orrrr paying full price, which will absolutely be stupid expensive. BUT, I'm obsessed with my phone. Love it. Can't be away from it. So is it really that crazy to need the newest version even at the risk of spending an arm and a leg? Luckily I'm up for my upgrade, so after seeing my friend Brian's iphone 5 in person, I WILL be sticking it out in the relationship, because things will get better I'm sure of it. Pierre (my phone has a name) was just having a bad day. It won't happen again, he won't stop producing sound again, I know he won't.
