Yet again another iPhone bites to dust. And then another one comes and another one comes and then another one bites to dust. And I wonder whether I am doomed in the Smart Phone department; should I just buy myself a disposable mobile phone like a Kodak (Phodak) or reluctantly sign up to phone insurance on a monthly direct debit subscription basis and allow my iPhone to wander off with little or no supervision carefree knowing that it can always be tracked on the iCloud find my iPhone tracker app (which I carelessly failed to download). You would think one would learn from ones mistakes of the past particularly when you bring your iPhone to a strange foreign country. Then it has suddenly dawned on me that yet again I have failed to take precautionary measures to protect the welfare of my iPhone repeating the same mistakes again which ultimately resulted in a shortened life expectancy of my dearly beloved iPhone (well with me).

I am in grief stricken panic at the unexpected loss of my iPhone. Why didn’t I just keep it on a leash? No it hasn’t nosedived two feet into a bowel of water this time (to be polite) it has been snatched from my clutch handbag. I just know it has. The illuminous peach clutch handbag that I once adored but suddenly wished it was bought in an anonymous grey colour. Ironically enough several days prior to the theft of my beloved Apple iPhone I had my hand luggage stolen off a Ryanair flight (not trying to make a sly dig here) and I had said to my friends if my iPhone had suffered the same faith I would have to cut this holiday short.

Ironically enough mid-week through the holiday my iPhone too had almost suffered a near death experience; my iPhone chillaxed on a catamaran on the Atlantic Ocean and got carried away capturing memories. The dolphins and whales were worth the risk. Thinking back I wish I had just raffled my iPhone away to the innocent Non life threatening mammals in the ocean instead of the horrible shark who stole it on the very last hour of the holiday.  The shark who stole not only a telephone, but a calculator (to add to the dramatic effect), an iPod, endless Apps that I rarely used but still went to the bother of downloading them, a notepad with tonnes of to do lists on it, a phone book with numbers of important contacts built up, And more importantly a camera; a holiday album containing 100 plus photos, snaps that were simply snatched away of memories still so raw yet in the past. Snap that might as well have been taken on Snapchat and gone forever. Memories that can simply never be repeated, memories that perished the day my iPhone perished. The emotion is still very raw.

In 1776, Adam Smith famously wrote: “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we can expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest.”

So FINALLY the anticipated iPhone 5 has been released into the public domain for purchase to Camping Apple Enthusiasts (pending Apples Website Domain). Where over the years the once perfectly contented Iphone consumer has been short lived due to Apples innovative genes acting as a catalyst to consumers desires to trade in their beloved existing iPhone for a newer model. As stated by the american comedian Jimmy Kimmel who states that the general reaction to the release of an upgraded iPhone is “why would they make a new iPhone those bas*****”….it does ruin your current iPhone’s current status or personal value to a degree doesn’t it!!!

Various observations and reviews have been uploaded on YouTube be Tech geeks and apple experts. One interesting trend is that some enthusiasts queuing for the iPhone 5 were in fact queuing for a worthy cause and not simply fulfilling their own personal gain. As stated by Jane McEntegart Men use Iphone 5queue to raise money for charity in London along with their New York counterparts. Where the gadgets are put up for auction on Ebay to ultimately benefit to their causes.,17656.html

At the tender age of five since the emergence of the original iPhone in 2007, it is evident that the iPhone itself very much has a short term life span where  generally a newer model soon replaced the existing model. The interesting fact about the iPhone 5 compared to its predecessors (Whom are still in existence ofcouse) is that more emphasise is notably placed on the cosmetic qualities of the product itself such as its design, weight and height. It appears the iPhone 5 has reached its growth sport  as it has not only gotten taller but thinner too, referred by ifixitmyself  stating the iPhone has finally hit adolescence.

However we all know too well that beauty is on the inside and being tall and thin is not everything, however, from its predecessors the design and cosmetic appeal have always been important to both Apple and Apple users. The question I myself hold is how much more can Apple improve their iPhones? will cosmetic improvements supersede the internal functionality? from the iPhone 6 to the promised iPhone 9, will no doubt have reached the height of a supermodel by then. The question is will it mature sooner than that?
