Thou Shalt Not Obsess

Gadget Girl is smitten. Gadget Girl is going gaga over iPhone, which has not even been released in the market yet. Gadget Girl would willingly trade old, broken down nokia 6600, 2GB scratched iPod Nano, and this secondhand Motorola clamshell inherited from her Ninang, for iPhone. Gadget Girl's older sister works for Apple in Sydney. Could Ate who reads this blog please line up for an iPhone now? She must have employee discount somehow. Gadget Girl would also willingly give up dreams of going to World Youth Day in Sydney 2008 (gulp) and live with ancient desktop computer instead of Macbook Pro she used to daydream about carrying into Starbucks, if she could save up for iPhone. Unless Gadget Experts, which Gadget Girl is not, say that it's not worth it, in which case GG (Gadget Girl, not gaga) can go back to real world and count her blessings again.

Marketing! I should probably know better, but sometimes I buy into these schemes too much for my own good.

hehe, di pa ata pwede iPhone dito kasi yung tie up pa lang with iPhone is with the cingular network sa US so i guess globe, smart, and sun are looking if magiging compatible yung phone sa networks nila.

Oo nga; due for release in Asia (not necessarily the Phils-perhaps 1st world asia like Singa, HK, China, Japan) in 2008 pa. By that time, dami nang pagbabago; he he, halata bang nagnanasa din at naghahanap lang ng justification di magnasa.

Marlon, Gadget girl hears you. Dapat bilis-bilisan ng Globe, otherwise I might switch to Cingular. As eef.

Ted, you have the right to plan for an iPhone. You didn't succumb to the iPod temptation like some people we know.

Gadget girl's older sister will surely get a discount, but we all have to wait til 2008 when it's released outside the US. And maybe when you come over in Nov you will be able to get your dream Macbook Pro at much reduced price like Kuya Ric...or if Apple Stocks keep on going up Ate may decide to upgrade to Macbook Pro and you will get her 17" Powerbook.

Gadget Girl thanks Older Sister for allowing her to keep on dreaming, hehe. Macbook Pro is highly recommended (in my not so expert opinion) so that Gadget Girl could upgrade to a Powerbook by the end of the year. Go, apple stocks!
