Who Do You Know With An iPhone? (And Are Any Of Them Women?)

Now that Harry Potter fever has overshadowed the hype bestowed upon Apple's highly hackable iPhone, we've had time to sit and wonder: Does anyone out there work for a company that is willing to reimburse you for the fraud-prone PDA-cell? We're going with: No. Even better, who do you know that went out and dropped basically $700 (or $1000, really, after cancellation of their previous service) on a soon-to-be-obsolete gadget with poor service and major security flaws? We're asking you to rat out your co-workers here, particularly if you work in sexy industries like media. Did Vogue editrix Anna Wintour have an assistant shell out for the delicate device? Does Timesman Bill Keller bark orders to subordinates demanding shorter stories on the crackable cell? Drop us a line and we'll share it with the world.


Office disclosure: Choire and Josh bought into the hype almost immediately. Emily would like to, but she needs to see how badly Sprint's gonna screw her over for switching before making her decision. Doree does not, but is not ruling anything out. Balk barely knows how to use his regular cell phone, and would prefer to spend that money on liquor anyway. Our tech team here, which is surprisingly gay, all had iPhones on day one. Anecdotal conclusion: We don't yet know of a single woman who's bought one for herself. Are women too smart for the iPhone?
