I cover tech gadgets and stuff at work, so I got asked a lot last week if I was getting an iPhone. Besides getting a chance to play with one at the store and talking to lots of buyers in line, I had no other contact with the so-called Jesus Phone.

The excuse I used was that we have a baby on the way and that the money needs to go to that. So I didn’t buy an iPhone.

But the real truth is that I am afraid of being cool.
