My brother Hani called this afternoon and before his customary “Hi” he posed the rather confusing question:
“Did you see it?”
I thought he finally flipped and the British weather has addled his brains…
“See WHAT?” I replied,
“the iPhone!” he said, exasperated.
“The iWhat? No way, they didn’t did they?”
“Oh yes they did.. go to apple.com right now and have a look, then call me back.”
and the line went dead.
Fortunately I was at a computer at the time and iChecked 😉 and was very pleasantly surprised, realised that I was in love yet again, and then the rest of the “i‘s” came marching into my brain: iLike iPhone iWant iNeed!
Fate would have it that I had a meeting in town at iMachines and I asked my friend Sofyan, the owner, if he heard of it (yes, he did look insulted, as he is plugged in to only two sites on the internet 24×7, this one – of course! – and apple.com!) Then we went into a iSomething fest between me, Sofyan and his brother Abdulrahman with each of us talking at each other in our excitement!
Anyway, not to take too long with this, I verbally placed an order with Sofyan for 5 iPhones whenever they arrive in Bahrain. Why 5? Because I will not be able to enter the house if I don’t buy one each to the wife and kids too!
Yes, it’s that good. Check it out yourself and then if you don’t come out with a “why didn’t I (or Nokia or Ericsson or whatever) think of this before”, I’ll give you the admin password to this blog!
