Dumbass owns a smartphone – Experience 1

Dumbass 1: Hello, Excuse me
I turn around to see Dumbass 1 driving a luxury car and flashing his brand new Apple iPhone 6 plus.
Me: Yes!
Dumbass 1: Can you direct me to xyz hotel.
Me: Oh, yes!(I hesitate a bit, I didn’t hear the word “Please” anywhere in his sentence)
Dumbass 1: how should I go (Still “Please” was missing, I was thinking to mock the hell out of this guy)
Me: Oh! you have got iPhone 6 Plus?
Dumbass 1: Yes, I bought it yesterday, it cost me a bomb.
Me: Amazing! What other features does it have? (now cost is also a feature, if its expensive its has niche features, if its low-cost it’s all basic features)
Dumbass 1: (Really excited, or thinking that he got a chance to boast about his knowledge of this amazing device) It has 6 inch display,4G, 8MP camera, 64GB Rom, GPS, bluetooth, NFC, blah…blah….. for few minutes.
Me: Wow! It has 4G! and it works amazing with abc network
Dumbass 1: Yes, I have even got 4G activated from abc network and it works like a breeze, when others struggle with download speed, this beauty does it in a flash.
Me: Hmm (looking quite impressed) so why can’t you use that brick to tell you directions?
Dumbass 1: what? brick? (with a surprised look)
Me: yeah! It’s a brick if you don’t know how to use it. It has GPS, 4G, etc.. but
Dumbass 1: but.. what?
Me: But, it’s not smartphones fault, it’s a great smart phone but its bought by a Dumbass!
Dumbass 1 is greatly humiliated by my words and people walking by and on the street side are laughing at his humiliation, I walk away with an evil smile.

iTribute to Steve Jobs: The Serpent who distributed Apple

Most of the people in the world believe that God created human’s in his own image, God first created Man and he didn’t want him to be alone and created woman. And he forbid them eating the fruit in the garden. But the serpent provoked them to eat it. The fruit was Apple, fruit of knowledge. They ate and this world is filled with 7 Billion+ Adams and Eves.

Technology was something similar, it was a restricted section to common people, which were supposed to enjoyed by Geeks, Scientists, astrologers, etc. But their emerged the serpent, who is famously known as Steve Jobs, who revolutionized technology to become part of household. I am definitely wrong in depicting or suggesting Jobs is to equivalent to Serpent, but both stood for one thing : Knowledge (I definitely know Jobs is real and Serpent is a myth).

Recently I read two books which were related to Apple & Steve Jobs and was impressed by the way he has grown from a fakir to a messiah of Technology. The main factor to Steve’s success was his brilliance in being a “Salesman”, the job requirement of a salesman is to sell the things that people want and as well to sell them which they don’t want. In first few years Jobs did both of these and was very successful. But his second innings with Apple was completely different, he sold Ideas to people, ideas which were never imagined earlier. His desire for simplicity and perfectionism is the reason why Apple grew from strength to strength and has become the Top company in the world.

Lets hope his child, Apple comes up with some innovative and game changing products in future. I wish Steve Jobs was here, but he isn’t, still we could celebrate his brilliance on his birthday: 24th February. Happy Birthday Steve Jobs!!!
