Generally I feel pretty content with my life and what I have. Unfortunately, the internets conspire on a regular basis to make me want things I don't own. (Television usually has the same effect on a larger scale, which is a big part of why I don't have one.)
I was randomly reading an article about Comparing the iPhone's 'true' price that I saw advertised on MSN's home page. Their tactics worked on me! I clicked the link, read the article, and thought about how nice it would be to own a shiny new phone with lots of features. The fact that I would be spending about $2000 over the next two years for the phone and plan actually seemed like it wasn't too bad. Until I realized that if my phone happens to last two more years, I would only be spending about $780.
Don't need it. It's pretty, but I don't need it.
