Boycott the iPhone! June 29, 2007 12:45 pm

I hate AT&T but I love Cingular therefore I am an AT&T customer. And if I had the money and the time to stand in line we would probably have 4 or 5 iPhones in the house tonight.

Working Assets is a really top-notch organization, and they’ve nailed one of the reasons I’ve been skeptical of the iPhone since the start. Handset locking sucks, and AT&T sucks more: These people are criminal traitors who helped wiretap the nation, neutricidal maniacs bent on wrecking the Internet, and convicted monopolists besides.

The conspiracy theorist club recruits members that are prone to spending their days huddled over computers in the basements of homes.

I can’t help but ask, “Why?” What is it about this phone (other than a drag and drop screen?” that would make you want the whole family to have it?

It doesn’t do anything that other phones on the market already do (except lock you into iTunes for your music) , and you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for them.

Well.. there is the coolness factor. And, if I was considering it, I’d be researching it so the closed architecture might knock me out of it so that would put us down to 4 phones. Mine would probably be a Treo so I could terminal serve into my computers and so that I could use exchange. Then I’d realize that Noah hasn’t gotten a phone yet and the first phone should always be a cheap and easily replaceable phone since they are prone to theft, damage and loss. That would put us down to three iPhones. I think the iPhone would serve Cathy well. I think Sarah would want it for the coolness factor since she is a high school girl. Tommy would want it for the larger Internet viewing (of course, this could be done with other phones). But ultimately, I think it would probably serve Cathy, Tommy and Sarah’s email, mobile Internet, scheluding and phone needs very well (and with style!).

I’d rather have a laptop.

And that is the saddest part. You can actually get a laptop for the price of this phone (fine it will probably be an Acer, but you COULD get one for the price).
