I couldn’t resist…

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

As an Apple fanboy (and heavy smartphone user 🙂 ) I couldn’t resist the temptation any longer and treated myself with a brand new iPhone 6! Or better said; I just ordered one and it should be delivered in 1-1.5 weeks! Pretty neat as I remember waiting for my old iPhone 5 to be delivered for nearly 2 months in 2012! A nice upgrade that corresponds with my iPhone ownership history of having a new one every two years (a trend which was only broken in 2011 when two iPhones got stolen at the Pohoda festival); I owned the first ever iPhone (which was released only in the USA, though it worked perfectly after a jailbreak 🙂 ), and then went for the iPhone 3GS (skipping the iPhone 3G). Both of them got stolen and I got the iPhone 4, then the iPhone 5 (skipping the iPhone 4S/’for Steve’) and will soon have the iPhone 6 (skipping the iPhone 5S), yay! 🙂

My ‘old’ iPhone 5 will become my ‘new’ dutch phone and I am not sure what will happen with the slowwww and sluggish iPhone 4. 🙂

Though first I will send the iPhone 5 for repair as it qualifies in Apples’ free battery replacement program after they determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently…ha, ain’t that so! At the moment it lasts just a couple of hours on a full charge, and while some see me as a heavy-user, it definitely should last waaaayyy longer than that! 🙂

Bob Dylan: “When you feel in your gut what you are and then dynamically pursue it – don’t back down and don’t give up – then you’re going to mystify a lot of folks.”
