Dear Life #5

Dear Apple Dorks,

Thanks so much for making a product that the average teenager feels like they cannot live without.  Its not bad enough that parents have to worry about cigarettes and alcohol and drugs as a result of peer pressure - but now we also have to worry about how in the hell we, as parents, are going to afford an I-Phone for out teens -so that they, as teens can be free to feel like a normal part of society. 

And of course, since the cost of these coveted I-Phones is freaking outrageous, parents are now trading in savings bonds and pillaging college savings in order to make sure our kids can get one.  Not to mention the fact that teens are now only willing to do chores to earn allowance to pay for MORE data usage, Otter boxes and all the other useless accessories that these phones ‘require.’

And while I’m at it.  Did you have to make a product that actually talks?  Teens already dont talk to their parents enough and Suri has only given them more reasons NOT to ask mom and dad the important questions. With all the advances in technology that you have available at your fingertips, couldnt you have just made Suri our ally, by programming her to say, “go ask your parents,” everytime they asked her something?  Seriously!  Epic Fail.

Iphones, like Facebook should be for adults.  Or only those old enough to pay for them themselves.  Now, where’s the app for that?

Apple.  You SUCK.    (But I sure do enjoy MY I-Phone)

    Gotta say a big old HELL YEAH on this one. Driving to the mall yesterday, 15′s bestie, M, now has her stepdad’s OLD iPhone because he got a NEW iPhone. Now 15 has iPhone envy, regardless of which number iPhone it is. Her crapply old phone just doesn’t cut it anymore. She’s texted it into the ground. She’s dropped it in the toilet, she’s used it in the shower (don’t even get me started on that). Each month she sends 8000 texts to the rest of our family’s combined 2000. iPhone? I think not.
