Since a few weeks I am obsessed with iPhones or more precisely, about wondering whether or not I should get one. This all started on Twitter, when several people I won’t name (but you know who you are!) kept going on and on about how great, exciting and beautiful iphones are.
I responded by making fun of them a lot, wondering why one could possibly need an iPhone, especially if you already have a regular cellphone, inet connection etc. It just sounded like a waste of money to me.
The iPhone craziness continued online, with much more talk and even an entire blogpost on eurOut devoted to it. On top of that this huge iPhone advertising campaign launched, which made me see iPhones everywhere.
I still wasn’t convinced I should get one, but I was getting more and more intrigued. What was the big deal? I decided to find out and watched one of those informational videos on the iphone website.
That 30 minute infomercial couldn’t really tell me why I needed an iPhone or why life would be impossible without one, but my oh my, no one warned me that an iPhone is SO FREAKING PRETTY!
It’s beautiful. It really is. The design, the colour (black of course. Who buys a white iphone?) and especially the display. I think I am in love.
I still haven’t bough one though. I might be in love, but the rational part of my brain keeps telling me: just be patient and wait a little while longer, until they become cheaper.
