I know Steve to be a sensitive soul so I penned him this little ode. Ode to iPad 2
Twas only a year ago,
That Steve announced so bold
A tablet would win
As Apples next kin
What hoopla filled his air.
Price rattled about say a Grand*
Every Tom, Dick and Harriet had a plan
Mockups* were about
and the specs let out
Take down Apple was the command.
Apple would be lynched and smote.
Their pad set up in smoke
Their stock to the floor
Steve shown the door
M$ would rule the land.
So the iPad was readily made
From the audience came accolades
There was awe, there was cheer
And then we did hear
Half a Grand was the plan! Not so dear.
The rabble cried out with such airs
Said the price is terribly unfair
The Grands what we need
To start sewing our seeds
Back crawling they did to their lair.
So now shines the iPad new
Many are feeling quite screwed
Whats up with that Jobs
His bowels are knobbed
Yet he ups the stakes by two
Back to their shops they tear
The cupboards they find to be bare
With the solder* all gone
They sing a new song
Vapour* Ware art Thou, O Where!
* Grand$1 000 what the first iPad was predicated to cost
* MockupsM$ and others had pictures and spec posted of their designs which they quickly withdrew once the iPad was aired.
* solderevery guy with a soldering gun and a copy of android OS is hacking tablets together in their garages.
* Vapourware Hardware and Software announced but that never was, never will be and therefore, never appears for show or sale.
