My family is heavily into the iPhone, kind of like people who love their Chevy or their Ford. It is an irrational love, that somehow identifies them. For example; one of the reasons I knew my husband and I was compatible was that we both owned iPhones. Funny…

Anyway, to the point of this article… I just received notice that the iPhone 5 was now available and I know that you would be interested in what is new in this release.
