Isn’t iPhone envy supposed to subside once you have an iPhone?

Regular readers of the blog know I'm a long-time Mac Fan, but I've only been an iPhone owner for a year. There were a variety of reasons for why I waited until the 3GS model to get on the Jesus Phone Train, but once I boarded it I promptly forgot what it was like to …
