    iPhone users are delusional, consultants say

    Many people I know are frightfully attached to their iPhones. They treat them as if they were a peculiar and exotic lover, one they can hardly believe they have managed to seduce.

    The finely calibrated minds at Strand Consult have taken this analysis to a particularly simple conclusion: iPhone users are, the consultants say, really quite nuts.

    That article is about as subtle, nuanced and interesting as a Chip Tsao piece.

    Many of us refer to it as the Jesus phone.

    Like "Jesus, wtf is it doing now" " Jesus, this thing is getting hot " " Jesus, its smoking " or on a high plain " Thank God I got it for free ".

    Not to forget after 12 months " How much to fix it? Jesus H Christ! "

    Happy Birthday Jesus for the 25th.

    From the article....

    The consultants put it quite sweetly: "In reality, the iPhone is surrounded by a multitude of people, media, and companies that are happy to bend the truth to defend the product they have purchased from Apple."

    Oh, come on, Chip Tsao writes with the subtley of a sledgehammer!

    And I wouldn't be caught dead with an iPhone I'm very happy with my 6 year old builder's phone, thank you very much.

    However, this is an intriguing app:

    Is this a hint that iPhone users are all Apple fanboys? In that case the consultant is an idiot as I couldn't care less who makes it, it suits my needs and I like it for what it is, not what badge it carries.

    And for the record, it's the first and only Apple product I own, MAC's for example don't interest me.
