welcome to the dark side

Hell has frozen over.

The BF is getting an iPhone.

Yes, you read that right. The BF who joined Facebook in the last year (and won't think about Twitter) is the new owner of the shiny new Verizon iPhone.

Ha! Verizon, shmerizon.

After reading a Wired article regarding data usage on the new phone, I forwarded it over to the BF because it raises some concerns. From the article, "Verizon incidentally announced a plan for “data optimization” for all customers, which may degrade the appearance of videos streamed on smartphones, for example.
Verizon didn’t send out press releases to alert the public of this nationwide change regarding data throttling and so-called “optimization.” The only reason this news hit the wire was because a blogger noticed a PDF explaining the policy on Verizon’s website, which Verizon later confirmed was official. Obviously it’s bad news, so Verizon wanted to keep a lid on it."

I send him the link as a friendly FYI to him and his new toy.

His response:
"Blah blah blah...i doubt very much that I'll be in the top 5%...scratch that...the top 25% of data hogs nationwide.  You have to remember...I won't be using this device in nearly the same way you do."

My response:
Dear BF,
You will be when you understand how cool it is.
I want an iPad as well.

His response: 
Dear Allison -
I want...
- a new motorcycle
- a new shed in my back yard
- a new roof over our sweet new bed
- a new concrete driveway and walkway
- a new deck on the back of the house
- a new BIGGER TV
- a vacation to Turks & Caicos with topless room service

Thanks for playing.

My final response:
I want this nice little Louis Vuitton speedy in the Damier Azur Canvas (and have for the last three years) and since it's Valentine's day - you can put up the money right about now. Walk into Sak's and ask for Francisco - he's waiting for you.
