The wrong Pad

As I have already said before, Apples spell trouble. But this new offering from Apple has got more scope and scale (looks like I finally caught up with the s/w engineer lingo) than the ones I mentioned before.

The newly launched "iPad' has got more scope for pun in its name than any other product ever launched. Maybe the mandarins in the tech giant's marketing division did not consult their wives before zeroing on the name.

You ask me why?

Why? Don't you get it!!

Okay, lets do it this way. Lets suppose you are near the water cooler in your office, and you overhear two of the hottest girls in the office talking :

Seeta: "Oh Dear!! I am feeling so low today"
Geeta: "I can totally understand. Its only for one of these days that I keep my pad in the bag."

Now, what they wanted to say was they were feeling a bit low and could use their iPad for listening to songs. What you (mis)understood, and more importantly (mis)reported to all your lecherous friends, is what I leave up to your imagination.

You still don't understand! Then I can't do anything for you. Its a family blog(atleast my family, read biwi, reads it), for chrissake. Anyways, what's there in a name!

BTW, I have a brilliant idea. If the larger version is called 'iPad' why not call the smaller version (the famed iPod) an iTampon. What an idea, sirji!!

I wanna die young!!

उम्र कब की बरस के सुफैद हो गयी,
कारी बदरी जवानी की छटती नहीं॥

Leave it to Gulzar to write the wierdest but the most philosophical lines ever written. To all the oldies of the world, who believe in this way of living, I salute you!!

My boss says, "I wanna die young, not early but young!". I concur with him। I too wanna die young. When I grow old, I want to be fascinated by the young women and envied by the young men.

No, I don't wanna be a lecherous old dog but a young old sweetheart.
