Yes, the phone was expensive, and the service sure as shit aint cheap, but it’s the app store that got you in the end.
First, you only dabbled in free apps like Flashlight and JellyCar. Two weeks later you’re dropping .99 here, 1.99 there—I mean shit, it’s cool to Tumbl on the run!
Now you’re four months into a wicked app binge dropping 19.99 a night on an app that lets you scramble virtual eggs or mobile analytics to quantify your own self-importance (in real time!) with full-color infographics. You’ve got no loot for pabst, coke or fannie packs and your parents just cut your allowance in half.
