Kristie Yamaguchi reviews the i-Phone

For my first assignment here at His and Hermit I was tasked with checking out the new Apple i-Phone. Being a pretty conservative crab myself I must say that I didn't buy into the hype or the movie trailer-like promotion of this product, but the long lines outside the apple store did peak my interest. So like the masses i hunkered down in my shell and spent the night outside waiting for my chance at Apple-crack.
After many hours waiting, not to mention the number of kids that picked me up and turned me over on my shell, I finally got my i-Phone back to my cage for inspection. It's $600 price tag was a little shocking, but more shocking was the servitude I would have to face to AT&T for the length of my i-Phone relationship. But I sucked it up, signed my life away and started mindlessly adding my i-Tunes and i-Photo library to it. That's one big downside to i-Phone without your commitment to AT&T your phone is rendered useless as a plasic palm tree unless you commit to a two year contract, bringing the total cost of your i-Phone to a cost of over $2,500 which for a crab who's calling area is a 12"x18" glass cage is a little excessive. So I give i-Phone 2 out of five gold medals because while it is cool it's still just a phone.

Introducing our new CocoHut
Welcome Kristie Yamaguchi

Well it's been a while since we've written, but there is a lot of great things happening here at His and Hermit. We have a new correspondent. Since the passing of our dearest Chinstrap we wanted to work long and hard to find a replacement. Of course a crab like Chinstrap could never really be replaced. We decided that we needed to look long in hard in the cages across our great country for a crab that could raise the bar. Finally after a tireless search we found a new crab in a PetSmart far, far away.
We know are happy to introduce Kristie Yamaguchi who will not only do a great job keeping us up on breaking celeb news, but also brings an Olympic commitment to the His and Hermit team. We are excited to have her as part of the team. Lunchbox couldn't make a formal speech, but did say "I'm happy to have her with us. Chinstrap will be missed and we hope to do his memory justice."
