The corners just slay me.
If Apple Sold Sheets Of Paper... [Gadget Lab]
Companies like, say, Sony, would be selling that Battlestar Galactica paper with all of the corners cut off at a 45 degree angle. And that’d drive the Apple iPaper fans nuts.
But seriously, why don’t we have gently cornered paper? : )
If Apple sold sheets of paper, you’d only be able to write on them with the iPencil. 3rd party writing implements would be impossible to find for them 🙂
Even if rounded edges are safer, where would the staple go?
Bart Simpson’s Cypress Creek teacher to her ‘remedial’ class: “Okay. Now, everyone take out your safety pencil and a circle of paper. This week, I hope we can finish our work on the letter ‘A’.”
What would the iPhone paper be like? Like a post it note? Seriously I think parody commercials like this pretty much cement Apple’s forthcoming success with this product. I can’t think of a single Sony or Panasonic product that was ever the victim of a parody. Oh you can find them on Microsoft products, but in these cases they are compliments.
Battlestar Galactica paper (and books, and picture frames, and dogtags, and photographs) is a lovely design element but makes NO SENSE. Why would you ever print anything on paper that isn’t a shape that tessellates? Where is the planetful of little diamonds and triangles of paper?
I’ve heard that the warranty on these things sucks.
