Fare thee well old friend…

After many fun months of jailbreak, and a few good weeks “living the rock-star life” with Beta 3.0 software, my iPhone has finally succumb to a rather ugly fall, splitting its side in twain and rendering it useless.

Ahhh, what an up and down relationship I’ve had with you, friend. For every instance you wowed me with your versatility, you dashed my hopes with an all too short battery life. For each time I was able to find exactly the answer I was looking for to an all too pertinent question on Safari, you took what felt like eons loading the simplest of pages. I remember the first time I tethered you to my computer, and browsed the internet on my laptop while driving riding in the passenger seat of a moving vehicle. I also will never forget when it took you so long to open the notepad app, that I resorted to scrawling a much needed phone number in the California dirt that had accumulated on top of my car. Indeed, it was the best of times, and the worst of times…

It is with a heavy dose of irony that I bid adieu to my iPhone. While I will miss you, there is now an empty spot in my pocket, waiting to be filled with a new piece of technology I can have good times with, and perhaps share a Sailor Jerry’s with. Farewell old friend.

In lieu of flowers, I ask that Palm Pre’s and new iPhone hardware be sent to me directly…
