A horde of angry flesh eating geeks should keep the street kids away.

Im reading completly between the lines and way out of context

"ah, one more day to go."

Thats not when he goes on holiday thats his way of saying shut the hell up, you will find out tomorrow! and is a way for him to let it out without him losing his job.. haha Laughing

I went and hassled my local Vodafone First Mobile store and they said that only Vodafone owned stores will be selling the initial shipment of iPhones.  He reckon that in Wellington only Vodafone at the top of Lambton Quay and possibly also in Queensgate will be only stores selling them.

i hope that is BS.. what about the regions that dont have a vodafone store, here in blenheim and nelson for that matter they only have first mobile's.. so id have to drive 350km to chch to get one? Surely vodafone wouldnt do that to us.. even if our first mobile only had 3-4 that would be sufficent.. anything is better than nothing.. Time will tell.. rumours suck!

Yes, I'm hoping the same, but it wouldn't surprise me if VF tried to limit the locations in order to generate more hype (and therefore media coverage) on the 11th.  Also it's the usual case of the retails stores are always the last to know anything so I usually take what these people say with a grain of salt.

Fair enough Paul, I'll bite.

Has this upcoming holiday been planned for a while?...

Or was it quickly organised so you could avoid the wailing and gnashing of teeth if the imminent plans don't match with your (expertly I might add) constructed hype.

You must have earned it after all of your 'hard work' over the past few weeks Paul.

So what you up too?
