It's just a phone!

  • Print

I love technology just as much as the next person, but am I the only one who is taken aback by all the hype and some of the behaviors this week over the new iPhone 5?

Just a few of the events this week:

1)  Some iPhone fans who started camping out on Tuesday to be in line to buy an iPhone today, were mistaken for homeless people and asked to move by police.  iPhone 5 line sitters are charging $150 a day to sit in line for you! 

2)  Police say watch your doorstep.  Thieves may go through your packages and steal iPhones delivered to your house.

3)  Thieves stole $100,000 worth of iPhone 5's and iPads from a Tennessee Best Buy.  Police said the robbery was well orchestrated and accomplished in less than 3 minutes.

It's a phone.  I understand it's new.  I understand it does cool things.  But it's a phone.

I'll get off my soapbox now.....
