No this isn’t an homage to Napoleon Dynamite, although I must admit, “Tina you fat lard, come get some dinner!” is still one of my favorite movie lines ever.
But Uncle Rico does not appear here, nor do Kip or Deb. No gratuitous “Vote for Pedro” references. Sorry folks. This time I really want to jump on the technology bandwagon.
Namely the new Apple iPhone. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, go watch the introduction Steve Jobs made at the Macworld Conference & Expo 2007. I’ll wait.
You don’t’ have Quicktime? Too lazy to download it? Well, my friend, you can read all about it here.
Are you drooling yet?
For those of you too lazy to click through, the iPhone is a mobile phone, iPod and Web browser all in one. It runs OS X for crying out loud! It has a touch pad, no buttons. I could go on for days, but you’re better off reading about it or seeing for yourself.
But if you’d rather wait, it releases this summer. I’m sure it will be a phenomenal hit. As usual, Apple has embarrassed other manufacturers by surpassing current technology by leaps and bounds.
I wonder how long it will take Bill Gates to try to steal it? Oh, did I say that out loud.
But seriously, I can’t believe all the features they crammed into this little bad boy. It’s only 11.6 mm thick and it’s better than some desktop computers and laptops.
Speaking of cramming a lot of stuff into very little space, the world’s smallest country is up for sale. Seriously.
So, you could own your own country and run it from your phone. Isn’t the world we live in amazing?
You think anyone would mind if I named my country Packistan?
