News, but not the serious kind
Where’s the stylus for my new iPhone?
So, Blog Guy! I guess for top gadget writers like yourself, this is a HUGE day!
Of course. Give me a hint. The new Williams-Sonoma catalog?
Oh, um, sure! I went over at 7 a.m. today but the line was very long, so I bought one from a guy outside. My staff and I are testing it now.
Outside? Really? That sounds a little suspicious. Tell us some of the things it will do.
I believe it will let you exchange text messages with dead U.S. Presidents, but only the really bad ones. I’ve already heard from Richard Nixon and Millard Fillmore.
Blog Guy, that’s enough! Can you tell me the most spectacular new iPhone 4S app? The one that is dazzling everybody?
It will stand in line for me when they release the iPhone 5?
No, it won’t, Blog Guy. Look at the thing you bought this morning and tell me what it says on it.
It says Palm Pilot.
Sure, just let me find some quarters and a pay phone…
