blog Shock news has arrived this morning courtesy of The Register, which reports that the experience of queueing overnight (or even for several nights running) to buy an iPhone 5 may not be the glorious experience which Apple fans have believed it to be. El Reg reports (we recommend you click here for the full, disturbing article):
“Physics student “Jessica C E”, who was second in line at Optus and wore rather natty pink flannelette Cookie Monster pyjamas she would not allow us to photograph, proclaimed queuing overnight “absolutely retarded, superficial and pretentious.””
To be honest, I can’t believe that someone would make these comments. If queueing up to buy an Apple product wasn’t a holistic, soul-enriching experience, why would people do it? Has Steve Jobs’ reality distortion field finally started to fade, as the Apple reins pass to his more modest deputy, Tim Cook? Will the world as we know it come to a crashing end? I can’t believe I’m reading these words. “Jessica C E” should be ashamed. She’s crushing people’s dreams here. If enough people read her comments, this could lead to the dissolution of iSociety as we know it. Disturbing.
