    The image of the iPhone user is a picture of the technophile or apple/gadget geek that has given up their soul to become beholden to the phone of power.

    Ringwraiths, you could call an iPhone user as illustrated in the following passage...

    "Those who used the Nine Rings (iPhone 3G) became mighty in their day, kings, sorcerers, and warriors (dorks) of old. They obtained glory and great wealth, yet it turned to their undoing. They had, as it seemed, unending life, yet life became unendurable to them. They could walk, if they would, unseen by all eyes in this world beneath the sun, and they could see things in worlds invisible to mortal men (WiFi); but too often they beheld only the phantoms and delusions of Sauron (Steve Jobs). And one by one, sooner or later, according to their native strength and to the good or evil of their wills in the beginning, they fell under the thraldom of the ring that they bore and of the domination of the One which was Sauron's (SJ). And they became forever invisible save to him that wore the Ruling Ring, and they entered into the realm of shadows."

    One million iPhones to rule them all, one million iPhones to find them, one million iPhones to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them?
