those phones

The iphone 6 seem to be the talk of the office these days.

I sat in a meeting while watching these two guys staring intently at their laptops, their fingers poised on top of the keyboards. The older management seem none the wiser and thought they were having an extraordinarily busy morning.

Meanwhile, a friend tells me her management is a lot more savvy – mostly because the people pounding at the local Apple website caused a crash in the company system, leading to one big company-wide telling off, and IT blocking the site.

Seriously? It’s a new phone. Do people in other parts of the world do it to this extent? I mean, by the end of the year everyone else will have one. Does getting it RIGHT NOW matter that much?

Sometimes, or rather, most of the time, I think I live in the wrong city.
