What the crap Apple?
What did I ever do to you?
Besides all that ca$h money I've spent on laptops, desktops, iPods, iPhones, etc... you can't show up?
Ok, my biggest complaint (besides the whole white iPhone being unavailable for pre-order thing) is that since June 7th, they've been parading around the internet. "Look at me! I'm the new iPhone 4! And now, I come in ALL white! Oooo!" Getting me all excited so that I can pre-order this white beaut come June 15th... oh and guess what... it's June 15th.
I stay up late to try to pre-order, wake up early, and what do I find?
White iPhone currently unavailable for pre-order or in-store pick up.
I feel like I was a little blindsided. Ask anyone I know-I've been talking about order this guy since the 7th. Not once did Apple ever come out and say, only the black will be available for pre-order. Never ever. False advertise much?
Oh wait, it gets better...
I am on the store's website, waiting for their live chat help, and on pops Kristie H:
Hi, my name is Kristie H. Welcome to Apple!
Kristie H: Good afternoon.
You: Hey Kristie, I'm Lindsay-
Kristie H: I hope that you are having a nice day Lindsay.
You: Have you guys been insanely busy today or what? (trying to be nice...)
Kristie H: Would you like some help with your shopping today? (doesn't answer my question, but okay...)
You: I am just wondering if the white iPhone is going to be available to pre-order?
Kristie H: I do apologize, at this time we do not have a release date for the white iPhone. I urge you to check back frequently though. (how do you not have a release date for the biggest gadget of 2010?)
Kristie H: Also, to stay up to date on the latest iPhone news, enter your email address in the box to the right at http://www.apple.com/iphone/notify-me/
You: So it won't be available for the official June 24th?
You: I am already on that email list...
Kristie H: I don't have the specifics for that as of yet. (Seriously?)
You: Wow, bummer.
You: Ok well that's all I needed to know... thanks for your help
Kristie H: Sure, I'm happy to help you! I hope that you are able to get your iPhone pre-ordered shortly.
Kristie H: May I assist you with any other questions or purchases today?
You: No thats it. Thanks
Kristie H: Have a wonderful day!
Kristie H: If you need or would like more help, please chat with us again.
Kristie H: Thank you for visiting the Apple Store. We appreciate your business (Yea, I bet you do.)
Sorry. I just had to vent about my disappointment. Not another word about it. Promise!
