How Many Women Have iPhones?
Living near a railway terminal, you tend to see an awful lot of people using phones as they rush for trains, but I’ve noticed that while a great many men seem to have iPhones, few women have. This is dodgy data at best – after all, I’m only going by what I see, but it made me wonder if the old gender demarcations about boys and their toys are still roughly in place. I don’t hear many female friends speculating about Apple’s coming iSlate, but all of my male mates are obsessed with reading the rumours.
I’ve heard that the iSlate will have these new features;
You’ll be able to write an instant bestseller just by repeatedly hitting the space bar 50,000 times.
New Wi-Fi capability means you’ll be able to make phonecalls to other planets and read newspapers and magazines from different dimensions, starring your favourite characters from fiction.
A special ‘Delete’ button will allow you to explode small objects that are in your way from a distance of up to twenty metres.
All calls will be interrupted with infomercials for other Apple products, some of them several hours long.
There will be a number of fantasy avatars available for you to operate, so you don’t even have to use the iSlate yourself. Choose from Batman, Sherlock Holmes, Katie Price, Simon Cowell or a pink sock puppet.
It’s going to be a bright new world. I can’t wait.
