    So we were up early, sitting in our underwear, spending vast amounts of cash on a device that will do just a smidgen more than the one we had before.

    Then we spend hours reading, re-reading, posting, commenting and checking order status.

    Then we wander through the 'net desperately looking for something to wrap our new baby in.

    Then we can't sleep properly for days before the delivery arrives.

    Then we take a day off work to be around for the delivery.

    Am I alone in thinking I've reverted to being a 6-year old at Christmas?

    The mind of a tech geek will never be understood. Just enjoy it even when all around you call you a freak.

    6 year olds at Christmas are more patient and rational.

    My kid is 6 and she is more mature than I am when it comes to these things. This is the most jacked I've gotten since the first iPad preorder! It is my first iPhone so I'm allowed:D

    I'm surprisingly sleeping normal. Thursday night I'll probably have trouble.

    We get tired of our previous devices. Doesn't matter the new one I will do the same things BUT it is bigger, should get better battery life, Apple Pay, IOS8, and girls in the gym will hit on me more.

    Already having trouble sleeping and yes, I know it's just a phone but it's quite big launch! I'm always excited for new Apple products.

    I'll admit, I get more excited for launches than I do at Christmas!!

    I'm waiting just as anxiously for my new Orbweaver to replace my Nostromo. The main difference is that I have a tracking number for the Orbweaver. And it will actually be here this week.

    If I hear from my family or friends that "it's just a phone" one more time, I'll blow a gasket.

    These things haven't been "just a phone" in nearly 10 years. This is my phone, yes, but it's also my ENTIRE internet, the only games I play anymore, the way I know where my family members are (find my friends), the way I keep up with the weather and sports scores.

    So yeah I'm freaking excited for a "phone", if you want to call it that.

    The 'phone part is actually a tiny part of it, for me. And I'm coming back to iOS after having been on WindowsPhone (Lumia 1520, so I'm used to huge phones). I'm looking forward to having a mobile OS that actually has apps!

    Until they realize the increased bulge in your pants is just your new iPhone :D

    You sit around in underwear? Thats too much to wear when sitting around the house ;)

    I'm excited because I've had the same phone for almost 4 years (technically a 4 and 4S) and I'm ready to have a better camera, a faster phone, and most of all, a working camera (my phones camera doesn't work anymore).

    It'll be nice to have something new.

    That's when you just throw their quote back at them: "As you said to me, it's just a phone. Don't worry about it." Then hang up or walk away.

    Yes, you will help them eventually, but let it sink in a bit first.

    This is mostly joking, of course, but I've actually done this with my in-laws, who are notorious for poking fun at my fanboy-ism, then turning around and asking me to help them with their Macbook, iPhone, etc.

    Whenever they make a joke about something now I just say something like, "Just wait until you need help with your iPhone next time. Maybe I'll just tell you to visit the Apple Store." It's all in jest, but eventually they started to slow down on the jokes and actually value the knowledge I have.
