Rethinking the iPhone 5c

The New York Times’ Jenna Wortham on the iPhone 5c:

I told her that I’d been eyeing the gold one myself, even though I already had a perfectly good phone right now. She said the gold and silver ones looked nice, but that they weren’t flashy enough for her. Most people wouldn’t be able to immediately tell it was a gold iPhone simply by looking at it, she said.

“I want people to know that this is a new phone,” she said.

The interaction made me wonder if my knee-jerk reaction to the C-series phones was too hasty.

Are you trying to tell me that the tech reporters don’t understand the mentality of the “normal” people who buy electronics? NO WAY I HAD NO IDEA.
