(Probable) Last Guy on Planet Buys Cell Phone



    With apologies to The Onion, the last guy on planet Earth bought his first cell phone this morning.  He asked that we not use his name, but gave us permission to use his picture. 

    Figuring his lack of technological knowledge would cause him to underestimate the viral power of the internet, I shot the picture from the back.

    History was made at the Verizon store Thursday in Cuptertino, just after 7am.  The gentleman was sixth in line as Verizon opened its doors to sell the iPhone for the first time. 

    Asked why it had taken this long to get a cell phone, the fellow answeredm, "Well, up til now, my landline and my message machine were enough."

    He is of course getting an iPhone. "It's the best" he said.  And then added "at least, that's what I've heard."
