Josh Helfferich created a whimsical set of six satirical iPhone wallpapers to remind us all of the pitfalls of owning an iPhone. His first creation, titled "Attracting total strangers", strikes close to home for me. I can't use my iPhone in public without drawing immediate attention to myself.
Initially the allure was charming, but now I've grown so weary of attracting gawkers - strangers accosting me with stupid questions, asking me to demo features and functionality. I'm thinking of printing an FAQ card to hold up each time someone approaches me.
Yes, it is an iPhone
Yes, it is awesome
Yes, it works exactly as the TV ads depict
Yes, you are standing on my foot!
