Concentrated apple sauce tastier than android food
Well, I don’t know the first thing about technology, or anything really, so today I turn my highly unqualified attention to this newfangled iPad Smallie or whatever it’s called.
Let me put it this way. The other day at work, we were ploughing through this bag of mini M&Ms. And there was this moment when we looked at each other and said: “hang on a sec, weren’t these things small enough anyway? Who said they needed to be made smaller?”
The same deal with this new iPad Smallie. It’s not like the old iPads didn’t fit neatly into your bag or your handbag. And it’s not like the new iPad Teensies are small enough to slot into your pocket. So like, what are they for again?
To answer this important question, I asked a large dreary know-it-all. Oh, give him his dues. My brother Simon writes for a major British IT website and he knows this stuff inside out. And what he says is, the iPad Littlie is Apple’s way of being able to compete on price with all the companies selling cheapie tablets.
Then he said something succinct and highly quotable and generally much cleverer than anything I would’ve though of. I hate when he does that.
“A smaller dose of concentrated apple sauce is tastier than something cooked by an android.”
I am also reliably told by sources outside the family that the new iPad mini has got dual core doo-dats and 4G bleepy stuff, so hooray for all that. But you probably knew all that, right?
Anyway let’s cut to the chase. Are you going to buy one? Why? Or if not, why not?
By the way, if anyone knows how to adjust the toaster so my bread’s a little less dark each morning, do give me a call. Please.
