I don’t have anything to add concerning the resignation of Rep. Christopher Lee (R., N.Y.) except that in the picture he appears not to be holding an iPhone 4 from Verizon. So any babe magnetism he might have gained by going shirtless on Craigslist he immediately pissed away by revealing himself to be the user of an unhip phone. What is that thing, anyway? Some kind of freakin’ Blackberry? Ha ha!
Speaking of Verizon’s iPhone 4, I see various sites were actually “live-blogging” the first day of it going on sale. And the tenor of the live blogs was this: There were no lines to speak of. Which is kind of surprising, given that coverage of this momentous event has overshadowed events in Egypt over the past couple of weeks. Apparently the cachet of being the first to acquire a slightly different Apple gadget has subsided to the point that people no longer feel the need to camp out for three days to get one. Or, more likely, folks are just preserving their strength for the mile-long lines that will form in advance of the iPad 2 rollout later this year.
No word on whether the former Rep. Christopher Lee has his eye on an iPad 2. Given that it will have cameras both fore and aft, my guess would be yes. That should eliminate the need to stand in front of a mirror when those narcissistic moods arise. Besides, now he’s going to need all the cool factor he can get.
