Wednesday Humor: The Next Paradigm In Wearable Computers

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The iWatch; Google Glass; the convergence between body and computer continues at a torrid pace, yet nobody knows just what the winning formula will be to make lazy, internet addicted consumers even lazier if more connected to the binary void.

One proposal for what will certainly be an "out of the box" (or "in the box" as the case may be) next generation product, and one which may appear avant garde, controversial and even shocking, comes from the Onion which as usual is years ahead of its time in a world which is now straight from, well, the Onion, which represents "a wearable computing device that streams videos into one eye, the internet into the other, and sucks your cock all at the same time." In short (to pardon the pun), a profit gold mine.

Source: The Onion, obviously

Here's hoping that's all a fake, and APPL will pull an amazing fake-out out of the bag, and they'll 'revolutionise' the market space again with a product that has nothing to do with a Swatch (remind me again who designed the first MP3 players and Tablets? Hmm).

I think you'll agree this is related.

 

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/30/pope-gay-lobby-vatican-gossip 

 

I've contrasted patients as platforms for

contracting as if they were cars on a dealer's

lot vs. platforms for technological ability

and compassion.  

 

I've compared the sell-off of passenger rail service

to the government when the airlines' original growth

phase, and the interstate highway system's growth phase,

which was a freebie for cars/oil, with the fact that

in its origin Medicare was National Health Insurance

for unwanted customers.

 

What does one do with this?

It looks like a mixture of all those, combined with

a vested interest in people pulling strings that

Amtrak not really succeed, plus taking advantage

of adversity caused.

"Death Toll at Foxconn Increases"

Quality testers of the new Samsung iCame device are dying in higer "than usual" numbers at the Foxconn assembly plant in the Longhua Science & Technology Park. Foxconn is the sub-contractor to Samsung and has erected a new facility espically designed for the assembly and testing of the new Samsung iCame device.

Doctor's are seeing the quailty testers dying on the job after working for less than one week. The related symptoms are crossed eyes, grabbing of the crotch area, permanent smiles, and blood tests show high traces of Viagra. Company and health experts are confused and concerned.

Quality testers are a popular job at Foxconn, since over 10,000 workers are on a waiting list for the job.

More details as they arise.
