Help me avoid the curse…

I was gone all last week as many of you are aware, and I figured that it would force me to avoid the 29th of June and NOT pick up an iPhone on impulse and Apple love alone. I made it through, but today, all my on and offline buddies have one and I feeling VERY VERY tempted. I don’t exactly have the money just burning a hole in my pocket, nor do I want to continually be such a damned early adopter. But holy crap, people! Me wants one!!!
