iFucking Don't Care

Empty ya pockets son; they got you thinkin that
What ya need is what they sellin
Make you think that buyin is rebellin
From the theaters to malls on every shore

These articles regarding the iPhone are leaving me with a funny taste in my mouth. Is it bile?
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Brandon Saunders, 16, had been saving his allowance and birthday money for months to get one of Apple Inc.'s coveted iPhones.

He waited in line with his 70-year-old grandmother for about eight hours Friday in front of a San Antonio AT&T store and left sunburned but grinning, shopping bag in hand.

"It's worth it," he said. "It's like Christmas in June."

16 yrs old? Months of allowance? Grandmother? 8 hours? WTF? Yeah, yeah, free markets are great, but this is a disgusting orgy of consumerism.
