Apple, er AT&T, tells corporate types to pound sand

Don MacAskill is the CEO of SmugMug, a popular photosharing service. His crew wanted to get iPhones. So, he had an idea that he was going to stand in line and buy a bunch of iPhones for his entire company. Well, of course, life doesn’t quite work out like that. Apple apparently doesn’t want to sell to corporate types and isn’t going to let Don register the iPhones to his AT&T corporate accounts.

We’ll see.

But, in the meantime, don’t expect YOUR boss to buy you an iPhone.

Anyway, join us in line tomorrow. Patrick and I will be there by noon. Come by for lunch!

  1. I have had the same mobile number since 1987. Yes 1987. But it is an old BellSouth/Cingular number. It can not be moved to an individual account. I am now faced with either getting a new number and giving up my old. Or hanging on to my old number (and keep paying for it) and see if APPLE forces AT&T to fix this issue with business accounts. AT&T has NEVER understood consumer marketing.
