    Kristin Sloan is profiled in the New York Observer. Sloan was featured in one of the early iPhone commercials in which she relays her experiences updating her blog with the iPhone.

    Her blog saw an immediate burst in traffic from 2,000 hits a day up to 48,000 on the first day of the ad. Traffic has since settled down to 15,000 hits/day. Sloan does not reveal how she was chosen for the ad.

    she was chosen because she's hot. 'needs a sandwich, but she's still hot.

    She's also a well spoken, talented and happens to have an iPhone.

    Although, back to your point, it really doesn't surprise me to read she has a boyfriend. Incredibly attractive.

    I went to the website just to see if it was real.

    I'm actually quite surprised they let her plug her sites address into the ad, but with the speculation of the "fake" airline ad I guess it was sort of a way to "redeem" the marketing campaigns credibility.

    I feel like crap because I have no idea what the whole sandwich thing is.

    not sure, but i would guess it means she could stand to gain a few pounds.

    Ahh, I see. She is a ballet dancer though, there's pressure to stay thin.:eek:

    I don't think she needs a sandwich. She's about the only real American girl I have seen that looks like she hasn't eaten too many!

    i suspect those photos only show her eating a sandwich though...

    my work colleague has just asked if "needs a sandwich" is a eupherism for something
    because if not, then within our office it is now

    sorry guys, I just meant that she's a little thin for my preference. She's definitely not unhealthy looking.

    koobcamuk raises a great point -- many American women could probably eat this girl!

    It was someone making reference to how thin she was.
    Yes that was the point, though not my point but when I see an opportunity to be cute I have to take it. ;)
    Yes exactly.
    And how!
    Trust me, chicks are fat in other countries too playa. :rolleyes:
    Hey hey this is a family forum, there will be no discussion of women eating women....
    For the record, I couldn't and wouldn't eat her no matter how hungry I may be.

    Of course they are. English obesity is catching up and might even overtake America soon. It seems to be the new thing to do.

    Aaaanyway, she's nice, but my girlfriend is hotter. Much hotter.

    Also you have a fast car, millions of dollars, and are better looking than Brad Pitt.

    Everyone's a movie star on the Internet! ;)

    I think I speak for all men when I say that I would definitely eat her.
