Goodbye iPhone, I love you <3 etc.

Lost my temper. iPhone was nearest thing. Then it was the furthest thing from me.

The screen is cracked and broken and touchscreen is not working at all. It still synchs with my computer though.

Luckily I bought an N95 recently. I’ll miss you iPhone. Best phone I ever owned. Now I’ll need to buy flashier clothes to act like a jumped up shit.

    I didn’t realise you were such a big Paul Newman fan.

  3. Can’t entirely disagree with the “jumped up shit” description of iPhone users, though it perhaps be said in jest. Allow me to explain.

    I have loved Apple from the moment my first iMac arrived, over two and a half years ago. For me, it has always been about functionality – yes, it is a damned beautiful machine, but it does everything I want (and I’m a power user in the megawatt range), in a straightforward manner.

    However, and iPhone users I have seen seem more interested in showing off their (admittedly) gorgeous new phone that utilising it’s potential. I’d be more interested in having them demonstrate something cool that it does, otherwise:

    It’s just a pretty little block,
    Compensating for their tiny little …

    I have so few secrets left now.

    > act like a jumped up shit.

    I could try and defend my jumped up shitidness by yammering on about seamless syncing etc….but what is the point. Back to your Scandinavian brick ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m actually quite glad to see another iPhone removed from this world ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not as fun as when it was blended, but still fun.

    N95 is the best phone I’ve ever had. Great space, great camera, handy online connection abilities. It does the swivel thing with the photos too. I have yet to be convinced by the iPhone, though when the big storage sizes come out, I may well be…

  13. Google Android adverts had subliminal messaging, you heard it first here folks!

  14. Tommy says:

    Am feeling sorry for you, Damien ๐Ÿ™

    I remember when I used an old iPhone for about a week and a half, before it fell out of my hand and half of the screen broke. Annoying-er still was the fact the phone worked perfectly!

    Hope you manage to sort something out

    Have the N95, best phone Use it for my email and browsing . More so with apps such as RotateMe, FlipSilent and for the DIYer in me pyPoziomica – a spirit level (how cool is that).

  16. TUG says:

    Why would anyone throw “their” phone???

  17. Markham says:

    Vincent Browne – least likely iPhone owner I can think of – has a white one.

    Not that it will make you feel any better. I just saw him twiddling it the other day and was a bit shocked – it was the first white iPhone I’d seen. Also saw John Waters in a full, matching suit, with what appeared to be a clean shirt on.

    Then we all started howling at the full moon. Aroooooooo.

    You’re self employed now, surely a replacement would count as a legitimate pre-tax business expense?!

  19. It ain’t a phone until it survives both a carpet bounce and also one pocket ejection onto a concrete path while its owner is running for the bus.

  20. @Bernie Goldbach:

    An iPhone user running for the bus? When? Where? And, of course, were they wearing totally pretentious and unpractical shoes?

  21. I envy you. Have held the boyfriend’s beloved N95 in my hand รขโ‚ฌโ€œ my entire body filling up with a red hot rage, from whatever annoyance he has caused, and come so close to hurling it at his stupid, stupid head. But have always managed to put it down and fire the less breakable remote control instead. Just not the same really. Dunno how you managed to throw an iPhone รขโ‚ฌโ€œ well done dude!

  22. @Bernie I got my first mobile phone in 1994. I think I had it 1 hour when it fell out of my pocket while running for the train. In the process I managed a perfect drop kick and sent it flying through the air to land on concrete. Luckily for me, style was not a big issue at the time so the only damage was scratches. I was glad to have a strong clunky phone – I’m sure I’d have been fired if I’d had to admit I broke it.

    @Damien You have my sympathy – but Darragh is right – the N95 is better. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. […] may have mentioned previously that due to headbutting a wall at high speed my iPhone no longer worked. The screen was smashed to bits. Gordon decided to organise a whip […]
