iPhone Eve

June 28, 2007

Gadget, Journal

˜Twas the night before iPhone,
and all through the houses,
the dorks and the geeks
click-click-clicked with their mouses.

The nerds were lined up
In collapsible chairs,
In hopes the new iPhone
Soon would be theirs.

The iPhones were snuggled
All safe in their box s,
Secure in the knowledge
They would run OS X (s).

Lauren in her jammies,
And Brad sleeping tight,
Lloyd’s on the keyboard –
On Apple’s website.

When what to his wondering
Eyes should appear,
But Steve Jobs on a Segway,
With eight wireless speakers.

“On iTunes! On Google!
On pictures and mapses!
On e-mail! On browsers!
Use touches and tapses!

On photos! On movies!
On phone calls to mom!
Dear legions, your dreams
Have come true -it’s da bomb!”

His eyes twinkled wildly
As he pulled from his pack,
a sleek-looking thing
like a tiny iMac.

He spoke not a word, but
He tossed it to Lloyd,
An iPhone! So shiny!
So geeky! Such joy!

Lloyd jumped around
All over the place!
“God bless you, Steve Jobs,
and your cool interface!”

    There once was a man from Nebraska
    Who wanted an iPhone and would ask ya:
    “Do you have the time, to help stand in line?
    The queue is as long as Alaska.”

    You people have too much time on your hands…would you like a crabby toddler? She has cute red pigtails.

    Lloyd, I’m assuming you’ve heard about Apple’s lastest give-away gimmick? The first mom in each time zone to give birth tomorrow gets a FREE iPhone … to use to call friends & relatives with the good news … you don’t happen to know anyone about to give birth, do you?


    • Beth Said on:

      Heh. I think that would positively kill Lloyd…first he’d not be the only one we know with an iPhone…and second, mine would be much less expensive…
