Complainypants: I'm not leaving without a gold iPhone.
« on: September 22, 2013, 09:45:57 AM »
This woman considers it "unacceptable" that a store does not have the new iPhone in gold, and thinks that the black iPhone is "gonna make people think I'm a lesbian!"

A girl I know was complaining on FB about not getting a gold iPhone too...I don't get it.  Especially as I know she gets a new iPhone every time they come out with one...which I really don't get.

ETA: Also, don't most people put protective cases on their smartphones anyway??  I can't remember when I last saw an iphone out of its case, aside from in an Apple store.

Every day I am more and more convinced that the United States, and probably a few other first world nations, are totally fucked. I mean seriously. What is going to happen when this person has to face some sort of actual adversity?

Completely agree. Louis CK said it best:

Well, let's just say that overpopulation will no longer be a problem.  And the coyotes and buzzards will think it's Christmas :-)

she needs a gold case then :D


but yeah... aside from my dislike of apple products (I like to tweak), I don't see the draw of each new phone... I figured people should at least wait 2 years until the contracts are up but no... but I'm running a touch pro 2 (I like it)

I know, I used to be that guy with the crazy case but then I realized it totally defeats the purpose of buying a small phone that is aesthetically pleasing.  Plus modern cases don't really protect from screen cracks anyways. 

Maybe I should start selling a phone with no built in case, just raw electronics, and then you can choose between different case options

I wonder if its because shes already identified herself inwardly and outwardly as an owner of a gold iphone.  Now that at least 5 other people have a gold iphone and she doesn't, she perceives herself to be treated as a second class person and even identifies herself as one because she doesn't have the phone. Sad.

According to national geographic, it's already here:

OMFG... of COURSE it's in Houston. I know that mall, and it's kind of scary.
