NYC Hopeful Seeks iPhone-Less Lodging

New York City residents have to be pretty broad-minded when choosing a place to lodge. Newly renovated kitchens could balance out a noisy heater, weak showerheads might diminish the perks of a doorman, and one's proximity to a great bar could be both beneficial and disastrous. But the New York Observer wrote about one headstrong 25-year-old who believes he can find an apartment in Manhattan, maybe SoHo, that doesn't already house an iPhone user. Good luck, guy.

According to this man's Craigslist post:

I refuse to live with anyone that has sold their immortal soul to Steve Jobs. I don't care about your app that tells you when you need to water your plants. I don't care that your phone can function as a Speak N Spell. I don't care that your phone has a million "exciting" features that exist elsewhere. NO IPHONES. Oh, and probably no iPads, either. Upon meeting, you must show me your phone (no scammers! I will be calling it in person to confirm that it is indeed your phone)

For the edification of Android or BlackBerry users, he's willing to pony up $1,400 for a room and considers Starcraft 2 expertise an extreme plus.

"No bronze leaguers," however. N00bs need not apply.

So if you're an Apple hater who's willing to bring him into the SoHo neighborhood, first make sure you're as far from 103 Prince Street as possible. You don't want any incidents in the first week.
