I think my loathing of the iPhone stems from jealousy. I, like a number of other unlucky Canadians, am locked into a three year contract with Telus who is unable to offer the iPhone because their network is not set up for the capabilities of the iPhone. Beyond my jealousy, I'm just getting sick of the pervasiveness of the i-branding. It's like everywhere you look, someone is talking about or showing off their iPod, iPhone, or Macbook. Wait, maybe that is still me being jealous. But seriously, at a price of $599 for an 8GB model, is any phone really worth this much money?
I can't tell you how sick I am of seeing pregnant women. That sounds heartless, but it seems like pregnant women are taking over the earth. What irkes me most about this whole 'baby boom' is that it seems to have its roots in the popularity of babies among celebrities. It's like people noticed in US Weekly or People Magazine that Angelina Jolie or Jessica Alba were having babies so they might as well hop on the bandwagon. I know this all sounds a little too bitter, but do you know what more babies mean? It means that we are all going to be subjected to more breast feeding in public, more babies ruining a good meal at a restaurant and more times at family events where we will be forced to fawn over a boring little baby that isn't even cute.
