You may be saying right now, "Wow, Mark is incredibly solipsistic and greedy, asking people to buy him an iPhone."
But let me explain.
We have wedding registries, baby shower registries, gift registries, etc., but no "Ah Hell I Just Want That But Don't Want To Get Married Or Have A Baby To Ask For It" registries.
One of my 2012 resolutions is to promote "Personal Life" registries. These are just like wedding and baby shower registries, but without the weddings or the babies.
And with ChipIn you don't even have to buy the whole thing. Throw in a dollar (or more if you like) and - boom - you've made someone happy.
Then go and create your own Personal Life Registry.
