I don’t own an iPhone 4 because…

iPhone 4It's not perfect. I absolutely love Apple products, and I buy them because in my eyes, they're perfect for me. I was really looking forward to the iPhone 4, but the stupid antenna problem makes it not perfect. It's disappointing for a company like Apple to have overlooked something like this. To be honest, it kinda puts a dent in their reputation in my eyes.

I doubt Apple would fix this problem with their manufacturing process and offer replacements to the current iPhone 4 users. They might pull it off with the white iPhone 4, but I don't know if I'd like the color. I could really use the extended battery life of the iPhone 4, and the awesome camera, too.

It's cool that Apple is offering free cases to all iPhone 4 users, but I don't want to get one because I HAVE to! Oh well, I guess I'm gonna have to wait until the following generation iPhone 4S.

What's your reason? If you own one, why? Respond in the comments below. 🙂

The other day I got a phone call from an unknown number. I picked up and heard nothing but silly threats and "tough talk" by a young boy. I ignored it all at first, but when I kept getting called back, it started to get annoying. This is when I decided to see what the heck was really going on, and try to talk some sense into this kid trying to have fun.

I started to ask who the hell this kid thought he was, and for him to come to my face and tell me the things he was saying. At first, I had no idea if he lived down the block or somewhere else. I looked up the number he was calling with, and saw that it was a NYC number - started making threats of my own saying I was tracking him down. He got a little scared and told me to chill, and asked why I was taking it so seriously.

I told the kid it was because his behavior was disgusting and I didn't want my kids growing up around horrible influences like him. I also said it was people like him that drop out of school, and people always look down upon. Then he was a little more serious and apologetic. I asked why he wasn't playing in the park with his friends, and said he wasn't allowed to. This lead me to believe he didn't live in such a great neighborhood, but I told him not to worry; I come from a country where guns were fired every other night outside my window for reasons nobody could explain, and tanks driving down the street going anywhere....
