Buying an iPhone 6S at a suburban mall makes you an automaton. Not very cool. Blogging a list of your Apple devices makes you a materialist. Also not the coolest thing.

I thought you were a vegetarian? Why buy a leather case? Not cool.

Stick to sticking it to the city council and get off this cool crap. You sound like an imbecile.

Scanstan, I may be an imbecile. But I'm a COOL imbecile, because I have an iPhone 6s!!!

Regarding buying an iPhone at an Apple Store, this is the only way to get an iPhone 6s through the Upgrade Program. You have to make a reservation to pick one up at an Apple Store, in part because a credit check is required through Citizens One bank.

Regarding me being a materialist, I proudly plead guilty. What else am I supposed to be? I am made of matter and I live in a material world.

Regarding me being a vegetarian and buying a leather case, I also have some shoes made of leather, and chairs made of leather. I'm pretty sure no cow was killed for its leather, though I could be wrong about this.

After all, I'm an imbecile. No, wait... a COOL imbecile.

"Regarding me being a vegetarian and buying a leather case, I also have some shoes made of leather, and chairs made of leather. I'm pretty sure no cow was killed for its leather, though I could be wrong about this."

--I think what you said is a rationalization not based in fact.

Of course the cow was killed for its leather as it was for every other useful part of it. It's not like they say, "Oh, we have all this leather, bone, guts gristle and blood left over after getting the meat, may as well make some use of it."

Since leather is such a useful and desirable product with unique properties cows probably would be raised and killed for their leather even if the meat was considered fit only for fish food. The cow is raised and killed for ALL its useful parts. Don't you think?

Some animals are hunted or raised solely for their pelts and the meat is usually discarded or ground up into animal feed.

I think in order to be consistent in ethical vegetarianism one may have to consider eschewing leather products as well as meat.

hah that is one crapped out dog

I own a bunch of mutual funds that have Apple stock in them.... by all means keep buying and upgrading!!!!
