Coming This Fall only to an iPhone 4 Near You! This fall Steve Jobs and Steven Spielberg have joined forces to bring you the ultimate in entertainment pleasure where random Gremlins will be placed inside your iPhone 4. Watch as your iPhone 4 decides to have a mind all of it’s own. You wake up after midnight and think it’s really still early enough for that midnight snack. Then when you least expect it your iPhone has cocooned and turned into an Android. AAAAAAARGGGGHHH! The horror. Thus leaving you a victim of the evil Steve duo and their trickery to get you to buy the all new iPhone 5 (pre-loaded of course with Steven Spielberg’s trailer for “Welcome Home ET” starring Drew Barrymore!)
Okay now, seriously Steve Jobs, enough of the games what’s up with my iPhone 4? This is my 3rd one and it’s worse than my last one. No, you can’t blame it on my technology force-field either. I admit I do have one and it does cause some muckery to ensue around me from time to time but this is just a bit too much.
See, it all started waaaaaay back when, with my my very first iPhone, and lets not forget I got rid of my blackberry because I just “had” to have an iPhone, duh. At first I began to think it was me and my inability to adapt to technology or my little fingers that have a hard time doing as they are told when I am typing. Then I got smart and started asking and of course doing some Google and Youtube video searches about people just like me. I found I was part of a small niche community of Apple fans who were willing to face chastisement by openly admitting I was unhappy with my iPhone. I felt like a second class citizen in a 12-step program (no I haven’t been to one).
What I really want to know is either there are Gremlins, or little demons who have taken up residence and are living inside of it. Is it just me or is anyone else out there having to make frequent trips to the apple store (which are such a joy I might add, as on my last trip seemed as though it was a playground not an electronics store)? Only to have the “Genius” tell me, “It is very odd the things you are describing, but just for good measure and because you are still under warranty that I’ll go ahead and replace it.” Between the lines, what that really means is they are giving you a previously mucked up iphone that someone else had to get rid of because it had little demons inside it – it was sent back to apple land to be made all better (supposedly)….
Then slowly by surely I began to come to terms with this dilema and realized I was really one of millions of dissatified customers. That was when all of a sudden a Cherub flew in from on high and a golden voice carried from afar off spoke and claimed “iPhone 3G will be coming soon”. Quickly I went to replace my 2-time replaced iPhone Original for the all new 3G and was again… let down. Then repeat scenario when I went from the iPhone 3G to the 3GS then on to the iPhone 4.
So what was a girl left to do?
Now I must be left to my own divises and wait. Wait. Wait, until the day comes that I have the iPhone 5 in my grabby little palms. Just whatever you do, do n0t feed any of your iPhone’s after midnight or you might end up staring down the face of a little Gremlin, I mean Genius.
