Despite my non-stop blogging (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/search?q=iphone) on the topic, I would like to remind everyone that I will NOT be among the droves lining up for an iPhone this weekend. The device fits my needs, but I don't have $500 to waste on a luxury and I certainly don't want to drop my service provider Working Assets Wireless (http://sumocat.blogspot.com/2006/08/working-assets-wireless.html) for one of the big evil guys. That may change, but for now I'm going to resist the call of the only phone I actually look forward to owning.
The same can't be said for Josh Bancroft (http://www.tinyscreenfuls.com/2007/06/i-changed-my-mind-i-am-getting-an-iphone/), who in a surprising (or perhaps, unsurprising) turnaround, announced he would be aiming to pick up an iPhone this weekend, despite dire predictions that the launch could be a "disaster of epic proportions" (http://www.tinyscreenfuls.com/2007/06/the-iphone-launch-is-going-to-be-a-disaster-of-epic-proportions/)! :p (or perhaps he intends to make it a disaster with stink bombs and silly string.)
Good luck to him and anyone else aiming to get their hands on an iPhone this weekend. Me, I'll be moving into my new townhouse.
