Hilton’s Paris vs. Apple’s iPhone

So which two stor­ies have been dom­in­at­ing the news
recently? Right! Apple’s iPhone and Hilton’s Paris.
It’s astound­ing how much they have in com­mon.
Let’s take a look!

Paris Hilton vs. Apple iPhone
  • Both are extremely slim, don’t weigh much.
  • Not every­one finds them quite as eleg­ant as other offer­ings, but for dif­fer­ent reasons.
  • They get press cov­er­age of every little thing that’s known about them.
  • News wires run so many stor­ies on them that they’re forced to run a story on how many stor­ies there have been!
  • Their songs don’t work as ringtones.
  • Both had legal issues, but got off quite lightly.
  • Both fit an expens­ive lifestyle.
  • People won­der what it’d be like to use them, des­pite extens­ive video documentation.
  • They just got released.
  • Quite easy to manipulate.
  • You feel a pang of embar­rass­ment when friends just keep on gush­ing about them.
  • They’re simple.

And did I men­tion the flat form-factor.…?

[update 2010] I now actu­ally have an iPhone, it’s works great. Also, Paris Hilton isn’t quite as bad as I make out above, I think she’s actu­ally found quite a clever way of mak­ing money. I just hope she enjoys what she does. I still think news­wires shouldn’t run stor­ies on how many stor­ies there have been.
