I read a fascinating story somewhere on the net a day or two ago, and the question was !!!

What would you do? If you woke up one day, and there was No iPhone ?

They all just vanished.

The answers were fascinating, some people couldnt ever bare to answer the question, there brain nearly self imploded with the dire thought of not using there iPhone every day. To be honest i go into the fetal position, every time my iPhone locks In fear that the whole world has vanished into a void.

Anyway, here is the scenario ago,if you wake tomorrow and your iPhones had vanished, how would it change your life ?

I would become more productive, for starters. Probably become a better person. Exercise more. Live more "in the moment."

Hmmm.

To be honest it wouldn't change a lot. Now if I lost my iPhone AND iPad, that would be different. But I would need some kind of mobile phone.

I don't think it would affect me all that much, to be honest. I grew up (and even started working on a newspaper) without computers and mobile phones. Hell, in South Africa we didn't even have TV until 1976 (the apartheid govt thought we might learn something ...). I love my tech, but think I could live without much of it, including the iPhone.

Of course, without Apple tech I wouldn't have a job! :italiamac_ilsolitopc:

Cheers
Dave

I am connected at the hip, to my iPhone... I can leave the house without my brekkie, but not without my iPhone.

Take 2 of the post above ... is there a time limit? Because I reckon after a week or two I'd go nuts!

Couldn't live without your iPhone? What a lot of nonsense. Get a life people!

Umm.... I'm in Sint-Idesbald in Belgium, no iPhone means no maps, I can't read Flemish and I don't have my dictionary apps.

How am I even making this post?

Help.

You know I think I will go back to Nokia... :rolleyes: How about that? I 'll put it under the bed and keep for safekeeping along with my money!


Damn it! I still don't have an Iphone. :mad: Brian told me that, I have to wait till Octobre and if I am lucky in June. :angry:

Shall we bet on that one?

Where do I start? I'll need to see a shrink and it will be the never ending story. Too long to tell all of you.

Sheer agony having to wait till October. Will I or won't I wait that long? :171: Will I succumb and just go out and buy. Ken, you told me to wait no? IS this to make me suffer a little more and pay for my sins? :blush:

To make me curse the Nokia so much that I end up throwing out and ...enough lamentations.!!!

The wife would certainly be happy - I would stop playing FIFA 2012! Although admittedly I would probably try and find another platform...

I tried one of the FIFAs and it was awful compared to the X2 versions.

You know what, I would probably be more relaxed, have less of a sore neck and like Dylan said.. Be more focused.

But I love my iPhone so much I would feel lost. I rely on it so much it's crazy.
