To iPhone 3G or Not to iPhone 3G?

It’s out. The fancy new iPhone that has 3G capability, GPS, less mass, and of course Corporate Subsidy.

So it looks like if I want one, I am going to have to do the same thing I have been doing for years and sign my life away to a cellphone carrier to get a discount on the phone.

I am slightly disappointed in Apple for going this route. I was so pleased that I did not have to renew a contract to get the Wife one. But now, to get the features (speed, GPS, Exchange Connectivity) that I have been holding out for, I am going to have to go back to the old way of things. Oh and pay a bit more for the data plan.

I guess I will miss the idealism and freedom of it all. But oh well. It’s a quality piece of technology, and I cannot get anything similar without doing the same thing anyway.

I guess I could rant away at the apparent injustice of it, the lack of balls from Apple, the tragedy of being at the will of these corporate bvehmoths. It’s quite the Quixotic endeavour and I just don’t have it in me to be the crazy guy charging at a windmill right now.

    Just don’t bitch when Apple drops the price a month after you buy it.
