It vibrates and then silence
I was really hoping that this little communication gadget would last a little bit longer, at least another few more years with 8 more cat-lives to fulfill my personal pleasure. Unlike the steam room or the sauna which many believed will do wonders to their live longevity this supposedly immortal being doesn’t work in the same principle. Sauna will cleanse our body from noxious substances, when combined with regular steak dinner, orgasms and chocolate cakes finally enable us to live another 126 wonderful years. The excessive exposure of this gadget on the other hand, will simply retard our brain and causing some to Alzheimer state of mind.
Now that it has marked it last day, the last resting place would be in a display cupboard with the earlier prehistoric electronics devices I kept since the first time my brain got zapped with the radio wave. This particular model was good and intended for everything except giving a good signal whenever I wanted to talk and get connected through the air. At least that was the excuse for me the last time I wanted to replace the bulky Xda II with this sleek black beauty.
The evolution from the first handphone ownership was really exponential particularly in the size department. The first model was a big one so famous with Ah Long of Bkt Beruntung selling pirated VCDs. It was so cool those days having that big menacing gadget while chewing rubber-gum in pasar malam. Probably it was meant to be that big and shatter-prove too. Those days I heard, if you got chased by a horny cow, a knock with that thing on the cow’s head would send a clear signal for the cow to understand the threat. I guess local enforcement officers has also learned the lesson (those days) and kept to the save distance whenever they spot the Ah Longs with this potential weaponry in the vicinity.
These days it was so easy to change our loyalty from one phone provider to another. Actually I have been loyal to this one phone provider, Marxis for the past ten years until last month when I decided to change my faith to another rival company, Silicom. The reason was simply because I didn’t really fancy their arrogance attitude. Since you can keep the existing number, it was very convenience and easy to switch camp (and jump party). I love this concept very much. It is the buyers’ market. Next probably the Digimon. Who knows.
This mean I have to get another replacement soon. Otherwise I will be living in the Jurassic park, isolating myself from this sophisticated world. I have planned to get a new one with the sole function that is to enable me to talk. Nothing fancy.
Handphone nowadays, if you take out the funny ringing tones, the wifi, the gigapixel camera and the main purpose for its existence is no less if not better than a vibrator. Sooo ticklish when it vibrates in my trouser 🙂
