dear apple: don't be cruel (a letter of tough love)
baby, it's just you i'm thinking of

Dear Apple:

Like billions of people worldwide, I am a fan of your products, particularly of the mobile variety.

In the last decade, I've owned two iPod Nanos, one iPod Touch, and now an iPhone 4S. The iPhone 4S is my first smart phone and I love it, probably just because it's a smart phone, but I can't deny it sweetens the deal that it also happens to be an iPhone--the original smart phone--in white.

I'm not the only one who loves your products in my family.
