Apple’s much vaunted iPhone went on sale in the U.S. over the weekend – with all the madness that you’d now associate with such a launch! BBC News has a good article on the launch fever, and my bestest buddy Texas Matt grabbed one himself.
Personally, I find it incredibly hard to get so excited about any new piece of technology nowadays. When I see people sleeping overnight outside a store to be first in line to buy a new PS3, XBox 360 or iPhone – I wonder – why?
It’s not as though I don’t go all geeky excited when I read about new technology, I just can’t imagine getting that excited – and that actually makes me a little sad and wistful for earlier years in my life when the release of a new Graphics Card or Computer Game *did* blow my mind.
Anyone else feel this way too, or am I just turning into a miserable old geek?
