I know that the first time I see someone else with a new iPhone X, I’m going to be insanely jealous. But then I’ll remember that I didn’t spend a month’s rent on a device that depreciates faster than five-day-old sushi.
Apple has always targeted the premium market, but judging by some of the online blowback after Tuesday’s introduction of their new Jesus phone, it appears that they might have aimed a little too high.
Don’t get me wrong. I have Apple gear on every floor of my house, in my office, in my home studio, in my pocket and on my wrist. I just can’t see myself spending this kind of money on a phone.
