Thanks Viral Marketing!


What happens when you mix the latest achievements in technology and sell it to the masses? You get the Apple iPhone. An awesome little gadget that has the most cutting edge interface and technology with a main feature to stream all the crap of the Internet to wherever you are. Time for me to ghostride my RAZR at someone's head. Why the hell would I want to streamline my ability to watch viral videos wherever I am? The last thing I need is to be stuck in traffic behind some idiot who thinks it's rad to watch a movie of a fat kid sing a numa numa guy song on his phone. The iPhone has a touchsceen, microscopic accelerometers that tell it where it is in space, it can play movies and be every electronic device you'd ever need. The only thing it's missing is a knife, I'll get one when it comes with a corkscrew! Why the hell would you need to market it as being able to stream YouTube.com directly? What the hell were they thinking besides figuring out how to get kids to own a $500 phone? Though I am happy that AT&T, Apple, and Google have teamed up, it's good to get those minds together. This selling of viral access where ever you are is like the Joe Camel of yesteryear. Pushing crap to sell something that is already the magic tricorder that everyone has been waiting for. (I think I just promoted cigarettes in a tangent.)

P.S. - I better not be handed a phone from my kid and have to explain why some action hero tricked someone and said "He got rickrolled" with a smirk. I will shoot someone.
