I'm Joining a Cult


I'm joining a cult. I've swore against it for years. I've bad mouthed it. I've cussed it. I've giggled and poked fun at those who were in it. Even my close friends -- of whom there are many. And even the dude that sleeps with me each night. But as time has evolved, I've become interested. And asked questions. And if you know me very well, you know full well that I always do my homework on any new purchase or project -- I rarely dive headfirst into anything. Plus, I travel for a living...and always carry my laptop with me. It's a necessary evil but I love having it around. All of that to say that I've just returned from the AT&T store and completed my preorder of the new iPhone 3GS. Such an amazing piece of technology. So, I'm in. I'll be reporting to my local store at 07:00am on Friday, June 19, to pick mine up -- and will be able to bypass the (apparently) long lines that will be there. So, just like Eve took the the apple from Adam (it was all her fault, you know.....), I've taken the fruit from the tree too. But, of course, that's what you'd expect a fruit to do.....take the fruit, right???

ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!

I'm not in the cult! What flavor of Kool-aid is it? Cherry?

Ultra Dave said...

Haven't caved yet. Don't plan too. As long as you enjoy it!

riggledo said...

I'm certain you'll enjoy it. I bought one of the original ones a little over a year ago and didn't care to upgrade to a 3G, but now, with the 3G S, I will succumb as well!

RAD said...

so cool....congrat on joing the cult! :-) I havent caved yet..but I am sure it will be soon....

don't worry, you can be rescued and de-programmed in no time.

bridgeout said...

HA!!! You are so funny! I love the way you have characterized this! I would likely do something similar... but I will be in the air on 6/18 flying cross country to our new home. I have been "coveting" the iPhone for some time now!

Jealously yours...

You're gonna love it . . . a MacBook can't be far behind . . .

wcs said...

Heck, I don't even have a cell phone, let alone an i-anything.

I'm sliding headlong into geezer-dom.

I'm all Mac all the time, but I'm waiting for iPhones to be available through another telecom. AT&T coverage out here is terrible.

K-A said...

Woo Hoo! I have prayed for your conversion for a very long time. You are now part of the congregation.

Welcome, my friend!

Enjoy! It looks like a most excellent piece of kit and I'm really giving it some thought, though I want a better camera than the iphone offers.

Jim said...

One of us... One of us... One of us...

Mark in DE said...

Let us know how you like it.

bridgeout said...

OK... so "coveting" aside... since I am in Sprint, I knew I couldn't get an iPhone because they are only for AT&T. And then Sprint came out with a phone that I knew could cure my cravings! So I joined the "sister branch" of the iPhone cult... the Palm Pre commune! ;)

WAT said...

I want one of those phones so bad!

cb said...

Bitch.

Wayne said...

I'll stick with my little TracFone. hehe

Stash said...

I still don't have an iPhone.

HAH!

Took me 10 years to get a cell phone so I imagine it'll take me another 10 years to join that club.

It's the best invention since toilet paper.

I have no idea why 'sliced bread' even ranks in the top million. Toilet paper is still #1.

iPhone is #2.

heheh...i said '#2'.
