FW: Apple

From: Robert


It’s true, I’ve fallen away from the Church of Apple.  I’m sort of an Apple apostate.  I used to be very zealous about computers and a lot of things.  I’m much less zealous about anything these days.  All those PC versus Mac days are long gone for me.  I was on the Mac side back when but not for at least the last 20 years or so.


I don’t have anything against Apple or people who buy Apple products.  I even buy stuff from Apple for my daughter.  It’s good stuff.  It’s just not for me personally.  And I’m definitely not in the cult of Apple.  I’m more like a post “Cult of Apple” survivor now.


Whenever anyone asks me, “What phone should I get?”  I consider who is asking.  If it is someone who is not very technically inclined, I immediately say, “Get an iPhone” or “Get a Mac”.  Mostly because I don’t want to be providing any assistance or technical support to their cheaper and harder to use Android phone or PC.


I can dislike Apple and be still be friends with Apple fans or fanboys or fangirls.    LOL.

InformationWeek Mobile Edition - OPINION

iPhone 5

RE: Prepaid iPhone

2 years seems like a good time period to have a phone..  I am still quite happy with my iPhone 4 after 22 months.  I think that I will have to wait an additional 4 months for the iPhone 5 to come out.  Even so, I am not sure how badly I want to upgrade since I am still quite happy with the 4.  I will most likely upgrade.

Best wishes,

John Coffey

I’m getting ready to drop my $80 monthly post-paid, off contract and move to a pre-paid $50 dollar, unlimited text, voice and data plan with a $600 phone soon.  I can only stay with a phone for 18 months before I start climbing the walls so I don’t want to buy the phone on contract.  Contracts just suck all around for me.  So I’ll buy the phone off contract and drop the traditional carrier.


This is the one I’m looking at:


I’m going to try them out for a month.  If I’m still happy, I’ll move my primary number over to them.  They say they don’t support 4G but everyone on the boards say their phones operate at 4G.

It doesn’t make sense to sell a $500 phone on a prepaid plan.
