Ok let me start off by saying I hate apple. So I recently bought an ipad. And let me continue by saying, I still hate apple. Ok back to the story. So ya I bought an ipad and the reason I bought it was work related. But the few things that stand out in all the ipad stories and commercials and friends experience.

The first is the story about the guy who spent his and his wife’s savings on an ipad when it first came out. So basically the wife comes home and is not impressed and all she says is “take it back”. So the guy had no choice but to take it back saying that his wife said no, and the store gave him a refund. So one of the senior managers of apple was going through the refund figures for the quarter and that particular case stuck out as the reason on the report was “wife said no”. He then decided to send it back with a sticky note saying apple says yes. The guy was so happy to be reunited with his beloved ipad and best of all he didn’t have to pay. So he obviously told all his friends and nothing spreads as fast as a happy customer. So that story is usually used as a motivational story about good customer service.

The second was a video clip sent to me by my father, and long before I bought the ipad I might add, that went viral. It’s the one about the oldish guy who is seen cutting some vegetables in the kitchen. Then we see him take the chopping board and rinse it before putting it in the dishwasher. That’s when his daughter or another person comes in and gets angry when they realise that it was an ipad he was using.

The third is actually a lot more personal to me, as it involves me, haha. So basically the other day I got on the tube and the guy opposite me was using his ipad to read the paper, and the guy next to him was playing temple run, and the guy next to me was skyping his friend saying where he was now that virgin has put free wifi on some of the tubes (only good thing to come out of the Olympics in terms of fixing tubes and buses). And best of all siting right next to me was a very pretty girl. So I promptly made a loud cheeky comment to get her attention about how obnoxious and what show offs thse guys were. As I slowly withdrew my own ipad from my bag. Then I said look at all the different uses for ipads but I am sure I have the best use of all. I then reached back into my bag to take out my grinder, roach paper, rizla and promptly proceeded to roll my joint on my leather encased ipad. I got her attention and she said she must agree with my statement. I asked her where she was going and if she wanted to smoke the joint with me to which her reply was an emphatic yes.
