iPhone. Everybody seems to be going gaga over it. Within minutes after getting their hands on Apple’s latest gadget, psychotic fans started taking their units apart if only to see what exactly makes the phone…. satanic magical. It’s supposed to be a phone, iPod, internet communications device, ice-shaver, tampon, inflatable raft and man-made poisonous toad in one. Furthermore, you can dip it in water and the liquid can ‘apparently’ cure AIDS.
Wow. We really have come a long way. Just a few years ago, mobile phones were as big as Shaquille O’Neal’s testicles and boy, we know they’re huge! The idea of video-calling and laser keypads were so farfetched that no one anticipated we could eventually have a message tone of a four year old girl, cursing her brains out.
But I have to give it to Apple. They truly are marketing genuises. I mean, I won’t be surprised if in the future people would deem it a necessity to live in an iHouse, ride and iCar, eat only iFood and name their kids iDavid/iMaria or iParis Hilton. iCarramba!!!
