back to article Premature ejaculation means fanbois get iPhones early

Fans who pre-ordered an iPhone 4 are getting them a day early, thanks to FedEx's efficiency, so now they only have to remember to breathe for 24 hours. An email sent out to those who pre-ordered makes it clear that delivery should be expected on June 23, a full day before the laggard retailers start putting handsets into hands …

iPads

A lot of people in the UK got their preordered iPad delivered one day before "launch" day, so it seems possible that it could happen for the new iPhone too.

Not yet shipped

My order status is still "Not yet shipped". No charge on my card yet either. It still says Delivers on 24th, I guess I'll have to wait and see...

Micro SIM

I picked up my micro sim from an O2 shop yesterday and activated it on their website. It was pretty much instant. I've got it in my 3G right now.

Nice title

Shame it set off the filtered word capture on my network's monitoring software, and now I'll get to explain to my boss how it came to be that an IT news source was referring to "gentleman's issues"

Needless to say the RSS headline feed has been removed from my aggregator.

Change of use

It used to be a perfectly acceptable word for expressing sudden outbursts (of speech) - ISTR Sherlock Holmes used to do it a lot. But enough pedagoguery from me...

Explain to your boss

That it's a private medical matter and he shouldn't be snooping - it's causing you a great deal of stress, which will probably exacerbate it thinking about. So he's making you ill.

titillation

"Drink enough during the game and your iPhone will be in your hands by the time you sober up."

Shouldn't that be:

Drink enough _responsibly_ during the game and your iPhone will be in your hands by the time you sober up.

Responsibly???

Since when do IT workers drink anything responsibly, coffee, coke, beer. ETC. :-)

Sigh

Why is it that the Reg spend all their time belittling Apple and anyone who like their products?

It's getting rather tiresome. Yes I like the iPhone- but I also like a lot of Android phones (and, if pushed, I could live with a Blackberry). It is actually possible to make a rational evaluation of the phones out there and choose an iPhone over an Android-based phone (and vice-versa, all depending on your priorities) and yet all the derogatory wording is reserved for anyone who expresses a preference for the former. There does seem to be a very heavy bias here (that is notably missing on the Reg Hardware site).

Is this just sour grapes because Apple won't invite you to their birthday parties?

(Not posted anonymously because I'm proud to say that I associate myself with any company that works to improve the usability of products when so much of the industry thinks solely in terms of specifications.)

hmm

Can I suggest respectfully that you are at the wrong website if you don't like being made fun of. The Register is pretty even handed about who it makes fun of, ie pretty much everyone.

Sorry, but tomorrow's game is against England - Blighty is more than one country, don't you know?

That was a witty and well-conceived post. Tell me, did you use BOTH brain cells for that? Or just the ones hanging slightly below your penis??

premature ejaculate would suggest....

these are men and not boys. The fact that anyone would be that excited about a useless phone, suggests otherwise!

How droll...

And here was me thinking this blog was about Windows 7 mobile. What was I thinking! How could I ever suspect that the reg would ever stoops so low as to dupe a poor numpty like me. I'm aggrieved. I'm ever so tempted to throw a chair or few.

That or I'll just go looking for a better beer.
