I hear from Sydney that the iPhone is becoming a bit, well, common in the tech community.
This before a release date has even been announced in Australia.
Personally I’m a fan of only buying Apple goodies within days of launch date – to eliminate any concerns that, say, mac fanboy Rowan gets some Apple goodness before me. (Last time it was a dead heat – he’s late to the party but partying hard)
Happily, iPhone aside, the days of getting Appleware weeks ahead of compatriots by shopping in the USA are long gone.
