"I have not heard of the iPhone 5," says Linda Casey, employee at The Spot, a local ice cream shop.

"I think its nice to sit and have ice cream with friends and not sit at the next table texting each other," says Casey.
A few miles away, a cafe in Beaverdam offers free Wi-Fi, but inside there was an entire table of non-iPhone users.
"I don't know anything about it. I don't know what the difference is between the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5," says Tom Cary, Beaverdam resident.

Russell Hirdes, owner of Borculo Bait and Tackle, admits he's been reeled into buying a Blue Tooth and Android.
"It's kind of one of those things that you're forced into because otherwise you're behind the eight ball," says Hirdes.
Borculo and Beaverdam residents also had a couple other reasons for not buying the iPhone 5, including it's too expensive and there aren't any stores selling them in the immediate area.
