Oh Daraz.pk, why you do me like that?

A few days ago, a friend called me to check the availability of the iPhone 6 in Karachi. As the phone has not officially launched in Pakistan, and because our market has been deeply infiltrated by sellers who put bogus phones on sale as ‘original’, he did not want to be conned and thus asked me for help. Daraz.pk was the first place that came to my mind and I told him to order online from them instead of risking the market. To me, they were the most trusted online retailers.

As an Android user, I didn’t really care much for the ‘innovative’ new iPhone with its bigger screen (which my HTC already possesses). But yes, the Apple Watch struck me. Not so much at first though, because the square design seemed a bit too antique for me. However, with the unveiling of numerous different kinds of straps for the watch, its beautiful design, the features it offered you, and its nifty ‘clock faces’, as well as the clever way of communicating ...
