Not Bullshit #1

No Bullshit, except perhaps standing in line for 6 hours to get a dammed iPhone 4. I guess I have an ‘i’ addiction.

  1. Jealous! I should be getting mine tomorrow.

    No bullshit, I’ll wait til next week, and hopefully have no wait at the Modesto Apple Store. I woud’nt wait in line for 6 hours for anything, never have in all of my 72 years.

    • I said that many times. Never. On the other hand it turned out to be a special experience. Apple treated us like Kimgs. Pastries from Il Fornaio all morning, coffee from Starbucks, then sandwiched on great bread from IF and their wood fired pizza (not paleo but I got hungry by 1pm). Ben & Jerry’s ice crem, them frozen yogurt and they even passes out umbrellas for the beating sun.

      Add to that the fun of talking to wildly interesting people and the this morning selling my old phones for what I paid, lessnthe Mafia’s cut and I chalk it all up to good.

        Whew cool, now I don’t feel so bad. Had to go to Livermore to pick up some construction bib docs., just happened to go past a Togo’s, couldn’t pass it up for a great #16, Italien on sour dough. Man was that good. First Togo’s in about 6 month’s. Richard knows what I’m talking about.

    Oh yeah forgot, how come the vimeo won’t work on my iPhone, all I get is code.

  4. Click on the first link below the video and it goes to the Vimeo site in Safari. Works then

  5. Having several friends who also stood in line for way too long to get hold of this thing, my question is … why? It’s not like it’s only on sale for a day or two and then it’s gone forever. Don’t get me wrong, I dearly love my iPhone and when my upgrade time comes up in October I’m going to get a 4, but I can wait until October. I’ve found that with technology it’s always best to wait and I NEVER get first generation anything.

    • You don’t have to wait, Trish. If your contract ends any time in 2010 you can upgrade now. ATT learned their lesson from the 3GS debacle and they’re being generous. Plus, you can sell you old one on Craig’s for near, at or better than what you’re gonna pay.

      I sold my old phone for just about break even, less the mafia cut.

      • Eh, like I said, I can wait. As far as my old iPhone, I’ll probably donate it to a women’s shelter when the time comes.

      • Your iPhone 3Gs has to be 1 yr old in order to get the upgrade to the iPhone 4. Case in point, I got mine and Jan’s last year when they first came out. She broke her’s and I replaced it for her ofr Christmas. So, I am eligible for the upgrade but she is not until the end of Nov.

  6. Why? Because I can, I guess.

  7. As a former apple employee I know all about the seductive effect of apple products and can see why you waited in line for one of the iPhone 4’s they are beautiful, managed to check one out in the flesh the other day and it made my 3GS feel like a toy. I am planning to upgrade in a month or two especially after the antenna issues (one thing I learnt is never buy launch day apple products) although design doesn’t change they will refine the manufacturing process int he coming months making for a more reliable product…..

    Really liked your last post on big meals, that was a bad ass meal! I think too many people are forgetting the importance of eating large amounts in one sitting, especially for those who are doing IF or in a calorie deficit for much of the time…..

    Keep spreading the knowledge and I hope things sort themselves out with the wordpress login, I actually had a similar problem last week with the 3.0 update…..

    Small picture, but impressive quality for essentially a camera phone.

    I did have some issues earlier this week with my ISP (Verizon DSL) not connecting to Gmail or my iGoogle home page. My Google Reader worked fine, as did every other site I have bookmarked. Just primarily Gmail.

  9. Wow, nice quality video for a phone.
    By the way, is there a specific reason you are using vimeo instead of…the usual suspect?
    I’m still trying to get my YouTube-Channel submitted to iTunes via RSS but…failed so far.

    • I used Vimeo cause I didn’t want to break longer videos into sections, like the 40 minutes of Sisson interview. I went ahead and popped for the paid service so bandwidth limits are pretty good.

  10. I am so incredibly jealous of you Richard! I have my brand new MAC but I want an iPhone badly!
