My (i.e. potentially mine) iPhone 4S finally shipped. It just left Mount Hope, Ontario. Who knows when it will get here… *facepalm*

I was #245 in the NATION for a pre-reserved Rogers iPhone 4S 32GB (Black) and now my phone will probably arrive almost a week later (Edit: It’s the next morning and my phone appears to have reached YVR airport) than the ppl who walked in to Future Shop this afternoon to get a (surprise) Rogers iPhone 4S…

Good thing my hope for happiness is not invested in a phone 😛 (but I AM upset about how the Rogers representative on the “Rogers Red Board” blog is deflecting all blame for their reservation system’s poor execution)

But I’m #245 in Rogers’ online reservation (pre-order) system for the Black 32GB iPhone 4S 😛


(from www.rogers.com)

I pre-ordered about 3 minutes after the Rogers system came back online (3AM PST/6AM EST). I guess I could have been earlier in line if I hadn’t read through all the terms and agreements before clicking “Accept”, just to make sure, hee hee.

Anyways, it’s a $40 deposit and it’s fully refundable. So now I guess it’s time to see if I can get my just expired 3-year contract renewed. It’s a Rogers retention iPhone plan from 2008, but it’s apparently better than anything Rogers offers now of days. If not… I may have to cancel this iPhone 4S order and start rethinking my phone plans 😛

Oh, and did I mention that I LOST MY iPhone 3G last Saturday, I think somewhere in Coquitlam? Yup. What timing, eh?

So today the iPhone 4S was unveiled by Apple, much to the disappointment of those who were hoping for a (physically) redesigned “iPhone 5”. But along with that disappointment comes a much more serious problem looming over the next months…

What are we supposed to Google to find out the latest rumors on the next iPhone from Apple?! The newest iPhone is called the iPhone 4S, and so presumably the next phone could be called the “5”. But technically, the iPhone 4S is already the “5th” iPhone model ever made, so shouldn’t the next iPhone actually be named the “iPhone 6”?

But surely Apple wouldn’t jump names from a “4S” model to a “6” –  that would just seem (to a consumer such as myself) too much like Apple over-hyping the next iPhone. Not only that, but jumping from an iPhone 4S to an iPhone 6 sounds too much to me (a bitter, jaded iPhone follower) as an implicit admission of guilt from Apple that there’s an iPhone 5-sized hole in their product line-up! (Lol, I think I need to calm down…)

So, to address this monumental crisis, I propose a new search term that will carry us through to the next (and most likely only) iPhone to be unveiled in the coming year. A hash tag for our habitual iPhone rumor rehashing, if you will. A tag line to end all tag-… well, you get my point 😉

#iphone2012

Short, simple, and hopefully trending.

P.S. That was a little more cathartic than I anticipated 🙂
