One Way in Which a Former Taliban Ambassador to Pakistan and I Differ

Mullah Abdul Salaam Zaeef, "a former Taliban ambassador to Pakistan [who] spent almost four years in Guantanamo" (FNC) has an iPhone. I don't. But then again, I'm not a huge fan of them.
And neither are the Japanese. The iPhone is "being given away free with a 2-year contact" (FNC). Apparently, not only are "carrier charges . . . a lot cheaper in Japan than they are in the U.S." (FNC), but also "few Japanese want to pay $60 per month to use a phone that can't shoot video, receive TV signals or text-message photos" (FNC). Even my LG enV2 shoots video and texts photos!
I still remember when the iPhone was released (but then again, it wasn't too long ago . . . unless we're going by the rate at which technology becomes obsolete). I was in England and a visiting American had an iPhone. At lunch, all of the men crowded around the visitor to check out his iPhone (which cost at least twice as much in GBP).
