My Dissertation on the iPhone


Okay, so we have a friend...uhum "Brian Vasil"..Who has been waiting patiently for this post. So Brian here I go, my reasons why Heredes will not recieve an Iphone from me (at least)...

So, it was mentioned that relationally, the iphone is a wonderful jewel of static free communication with the wife. Well, if hubby would have kept the nice rizr that he bought (which is also static free) & not exchanged it for a static blackberry, our conversations would be clearer. But, we fixed this problem bc he got a cute little ear piece that allows his wife to hear him better. And I gained a brand new phone. And bc of that unwise decision he must face the consequences. (No $600. iphone)

Second, through his "now" phone, we can also text each other & he has this awesome system called spin vox. It simply turns voice messages into text messages. So, there really is no need for an iphone. He also gets to go online, not only on his computer, but on his phone. So, he has easy map availability. But there is something better than looking for a map- he's got ME! I am his map that guides him everywhere...& I'm free..:)

Third, when we go out on dates I like to go to the restroom to fix my makeup or look in the mirror...Plus I don't need a slick, shiny iphone to look into, I carry my MAC (makeup line) powder & bronzer with built-in mirror that fixes the problem. And let me tell you, Heredes can't keep his hands off my MAC bronzer...Huh sweety!!!

The next thing I read "somewhere" was how the iphone helps us socially...Well, see I have this wonderful little gadget called T.vo....which records all my favorite shows & movies & news that I can watch whenever I want & keeps me updated on life...Like Nicole Richie being pregnant & maybe going to jail...I mean, it's fascinating...And I get to see it on my big t.v., not a little, tiny screen...well, like the iphone.

Now, I know I may sound like a cruel, old wife...but in actuallity I'm not...I mean let's just do a little recap of all the wonderful Mac gadgets Heredes already owns...An ipod shuffle, which the Lord blessed him with for free after winning a singing contest at the "CATALYST" conference....a mac laptop....& a beautiful, black ipod video that his beautiful wife bought him for his birthday....

Finally, I liked to end with some wife input...I believe wives like talking to their husbands face to face more times than talking on the phone or watching their husband's talking on the phone or talking to their phone....Wives like to go out on dates without distracations....phones are distractions....and wives prefer traveling, like to Australia, Brazil, Europe, Africa, etc...then spending $600...+ on a phone...so, enough rambling...I'd just like to end by saying, yup the iphone is cool...its sleek, skinny, shiny, & beautiful...but it is just one more "thing" or "stuff" that can cloud our view....So, like we have been talking about in kids church- Contentment: deciding to be happy with what you've got! lololol...(its true)

Well Brian, thank you for starting this..I had fun...And I write this with so much laughter & smiles.

My peeps, i love you guys, I adore my husband, & if you'd like to pitch in & buy him an iphone, by all means do it....thank you for your love & support...and wives & other ladies, if you'd like to give your opinion backing me up feel free to do so...if you don't back me up, don't leave a comment...lol....peace out!

And by the way: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BRIAN VASIL..7/16/07

Marcy said...

lol...i love you baby!! i promise you i will get you something one day that will be way better than an iPhone...lol...muah!!

KristelFatima said...

Yeah...the iPhone is just too expensive. I don't need a computer/iPod/phone all mixed into one b/c I already have all of these things separately and I like it just fine that way. :-)

However, Steve Jobs is quite the giver...and he's giving his employees free iPhones...so that's good for Alex! Tell Heredes to talk to Alex...maybe he can convince Alex to sell it to him for a good price.. ;-)

Or maybe not...

oh marcy....Ignorance is bliss!!
Sure the blackberry has the text converter thingy...but does it have visual voicemail, Multi touch, and a Touch screen ipod???....I DON'T THINK SO!!...you have my pitty Heredes...I guess its static and dropped calls for now!!

Marcy said...

oh robertico,
did you not read my dissertation....he's got a church phone as well...and 24 hr. aim access...so ehhhh...sry....lol..love ya man....

Heredes said...

THANKS ROBERT !! KEEP AT HER BRO >>>

Brian said...

I am deeply disappointed for Heredes. Your points were very well made even though my heart weeps. I will try to console him during those sad moments when he sits alone at the "uncool kids with no iPhone table" at our staff lunches. Perhaps when he finds himself lost and alone on some superhighway in some forsaken part of this great land of ours...he will be able to flip open his functional...yet still lacking phone...and call you to help him. If only he had the iPhone with its Google maps and iPod to keep him busy while he waits.

My thoughts and prayers go to your family as you attempt to rethink your priorities.

Just kidding. Great post Marcy. Makes me want to throw my phone in the canal and go back to my beeper.
