I'm always wary of stories labels as "true story" but if this is true, this guy really wanted an iPhone:

A Gizmodo reader underwent a vasectomy to get an Apple iPhone, following his wife's orders after a road trip with his kids to Boise, Idaho. But fear not, dear readers-with-your-manly-parts-still-intact, because his amazing tale of heroic Apple fandom doesn't include any Bobbit-style genital violence. Keep reading to know why and the —strange— happy finish.

How far would you go to get the gadget of your dreams?

How far would I go?  I'm not sure, but one thing that I am certain of is that I wouldn't go that far.

    iPhone = Castration?

    It was just a matter of time before the iPhone was made synonymous with
    emasculation. Everyone knows real men have Blackberries.

      No one except a paranoid Mac zealot would have deduced "iPhone = Castration?" from this article. The story was about how far people will go to get their desired gadget. The iPhone was incidental to the story. Get over your Zdnet is picking on Apple complex.

      • It's not castration

        It's just a simple disconnection. :)

    it was probably [i]his[/i] idea.

    He got disconnected in a dangerous area in order to get
    connected with an iPhone.

    but wait until he finds out what he has to do in order to
    get tested to ensure that the surgery was successful. :)
