A little bird told me

post #1 of 378
Thread Starter 
As I was flying to my nest.
Things got windy, I'm at no rest...
He zipped through my path at warp speed,
Pretty fast indeed.

"Hey little bird" I inquired
"Where to do you fly, in such a manner ?"
He swirled above me more than n times.
Than he slowed to spit these rhymes:

I go to where you never thought,
Nor you will, I kid you not.
My toes are numbered can't you see ?
My speed is standard, believe you me !
My next of keen will trail me soon
He'll will float around you , not zoom.
But still you may rest in your path
The view will change as you go fast.

Yeah, deciphering that would make me think too hard, so forget it.

speed is standard... either connection or processor

1-Speed... almost right.
2-Number of toes ...wrong. You can watch the pixar birds with more atention.
3-Next of kin...wrong. But you reasoning was right. It' related to 2
4-view change...wrong.

post #20 of 378

missed your reply in the rush

Keywords :

n times. -- n wireless in new macs and iTV
Speed. -- speed of adoption of macs? ipods? growth? blu-ray/HD-DVD spin speed?? if its NOT cpu upgrades then ????
Number of toes on a fast bird. --8 toes counting the BACK claw!!! OCTO MAC PRO!! HAS to be
Next of kin. -- iPod update! as you said above it relates to no.2 in cutemartins guess
View change. -- ??? isight? iTV?? an apple TV? or is it AHH the new UI in Leopard!!!

You got one right. And to be completely fair:

It's the new Airport Xn gear.
_________________
I will say this, and this is my FINAL hint.
In the riddle , there ABSOLUTELY NO iPODs mentioned. I know nothing about iPods, or iPhones or combination, Permutation of the two.

This is just straight Apple Products in BlowyourMindandSocks fashion. It's much cooler than iPods.IMHO.

Ok i'll try again!

speed - faster iMacs
toes - do they have three on the front, and one on the back of each feet? if so, we're talking ...
(gets out calculator widget...) maybe osx 10.8 (next of kin is lion?)
or are you talking about just the three on one foot - phone is 3G?
view change must then be widescreen ipod?

or maybe not?

1 Speed. Hmmm...Incomplete so I will tick it as wrong. Faster Mac are no prediction at all. Even Dell vomits faster hardware every once in a while.
2 Toes. Sorry no hints. But it has been mentioned in this thread.
3 No Ipods here.
4 View change. wrong.

You got something right but your path is no longer fruitful !
There are still X to be guessed from the riddle. I will not consider lists of ALL possible things.

1. No.
2. Number is right. Prediction is wrong.
3. Yes. but this is NOT the "next of kin" stuff. This in the "n" number as stated before.
4.No.

Since no little birds talk, I have to question the veracity of the original post. Now, had it been a large parrot, well, then I might be buying this AirPort Extreme Mark II Super thing.
