Let’s not pretend that Apple doesn’t know what it’s doing. Oh, it does, I tell you. It knows very well what it’s doing to me, or well all of us for that matter. As you may well know, last year I wrote a couple of Soapbox articles about my struggle to get an iPhone. A struggle that traversed two countries. A struggle that pitted me against one of the most difficult foes that a man can ever come across…his wife. Through my long arduous struggle, I finally defeated my foe with the tenacity and cunning of a fox. Ok, well, actually my wife finally said I could have an iPhone, but hey, I finally did get one, and if I haven’t said so before. I LOVE MY iPhone. But wait, what’s this? What has Apple come along and done AGAIN? They have introduced a NEW iPhone into the mix. A NEW iPhone I said. BUT I JUST GOT THIS ONE, and now there is a new one?
You may ask me, “What does this new iPhone do?”, and I will tell you…. I really have no idea, but I want one. I want it now. Oh friends and fellow soapbox readers I see an epic battle in my future, an epic battle the likes of which the world has never seen before. It will be the battle to end all battles. People will talk about it for years…ugh. Ok, again, the truth is there will be no battle. When my wife gets home I will throw myself on the ground, beg, scream and cry like a little kid until she caves, and if that doesn’t work I will pout. I will pout for months if takes it.

Wish me luck.
