Forget the fact the iPad sounds like a feminine hygiene product. They. Are. Cool.
BUY ONE! they're cooool
In passing conversation today at work, it dawned on me- everyone will own an iPad because of its inescapable coolness. I realized this as I spoke to “H”, an ex-military co-worker of mine (hence my constant references to “This is America”. You gotta know how to appeal to your audience.)
J: You want an Apple iPad!
H: No I don’t.
J: Now! You want an Apple iPad now!
H: No. I don’t.
J: It’ll be your portable porn portal!
H: My phone is that already.
J: Yeah, but this is faster. And bigger! This is America! Bigger is always better!
H: Why would I want that? I have a computer. And a cell phone. Why would I want something between that?
J: Cos there’s a hole there! A big hole between your phone and your computer.
H: I’m not getting one; I don’t want that.
J: Hear that? That’s the sound of derisive wind blowing through the hole. Whoooooo
H: I’ll spend my money on something way better than that.
J: Like one law school book? Which iPad would you get, the cheap one? That’s the one I’d get.
H: No way, I’d spend it on…
J: You’ll have one in law school. I’ll call you and you’ll say “there’s a Black’s Law Dictionary app!”
H: Absolutely not.
J; But they’re so cool!
H: You kids and your “cool” stuff.
J: America’s all about cool!
J: Like sunglasses! Steve McQueen!
H walks away
J: James Dean!
