iPhone?

Does anyone have an old 4 or 4S for sale?

A friend in Brooklyn has been without his since Hurricane Sandy sunk it at the bottom of the Gowanus Canal.

Let me know if you can help and I’ll connect you.

High-res No, John D. Sutter at CNN. That’s not what happened, at all.
Apple didn’t “blame” “iPhone tracking” on anything.
Apple clearly defined the reason they intentionally collect the data, and put to rest any questions that the data is used for, or even capable of, “tracking” individuals.
There is a bug, but it has little to nothing to do with the big story. Instead, you’ve taken a minor bug and used it to sensationalize the real story, as usual.
For the record, no, I’m not a fanboy. I’m a stockholder. And this is the kind of bullshit headline and reporting that infuriates me.
I’ve unsubscribed from CNN’s RSS feed. If you’ve got suggestions for a replacement, please leave a reply.

High-res Current obsession: digging through my Aperture library to find photographs that would make good GelaSkins for my iPhone.
It bothers me that they don’t have any photographers in their roster of “Artists,” so if I find enough of my photos that I think will work, then I think I’ll inquire about becoming an Artist myself.

High-res I went to UPS to pick up my iPhone 4. There were 10 more just sitting on the customer service desk waiting for their rightful owners to come claim them.
I can’t imagine how many of those little boxes UPS delivered today (sales numbers should be released soon), not to mention how much money they earned from Verizon for being their delivery service.

High-res It’s relevant to point out that I’ve been using the same phone since 2006 and I’m about 3 years overdue for my “free” phone upgrade.
So… waiting a little longer isn’t going to kill me… though upgrading ASAP is extremely tempting.

Dilemma

Verizon. iPhone. Finally. Great. Hooray.

But, here’s my issue…

Todays reports are that Verizon will be offering an unlimited data plan for $30/month, but that this offer will only exist for “a limited time” - the duration of which will surely be kept secret from customers.  Obviously I’d want to jump in on an unlimited data plan and potentially grandfather myself into unlimited data for the life of my contract, especially if I plan to use the iPhone as a wireless hotspot.

However, I’d prefer to wait until July to buy the likely-to-be-released iPhone 5. Obviously it doesn’t make much sense to buy an iPhone 4 now and then have to shell out full price in a few months for an upgrade to the latest and greatest.

And so… buy iPhone 4 now and secure myself with an unlimited data plan but then have to pay full upgrade cost to iPhone 5 in just a few months… OR… wait to buy iPhone 5 in a few months and run the risk of getting stuck with a crappy tiered data plan and have to pay frequent overages.

I hate decisions like this.
