Over the weekend my wife was watching a quite dreadful TV show called Million Dollar Listing New York which follows the lives of high-end real estate agents. They are seen negotiating the sales of apartments and houses which are valued up to and beyond $16 million with commissions for the agents coming in at approx $250,000 per sale.
It's big business and offers a glimpse of how very rich people live, but one thing struck me as I witnessed what was happening. These people are being chauffeured around in Bentleys, they are wearing Patek Philippe watches and extremely expensive suits. There is no expense spared throughout, but every single person I saw in the show was using an iPhone.
The rich real estate agents, the buyers purchasing properties for millions of dollars and the sellers letting their apartments go for millions. They all carried iPhones, but everything else on them was incredibly expensive. As I have always said, the iPhone is the only product I own that feels like the best of its kind and it is able to be purchased by many millions of people, unlike those watches, suits and huge apartments.
