PLEASE READ THE WHOLE THING, you’ll end up either hating me or ROFLing!!
Okay I posted an announcement the other day about KUNIV is having an Electronic Expo! I was planning to go yesterday, but I missed my classes, was sleeping!! Today I went there after my 10 O’Clock Chemistry class ended(@10:50) and I had some fun!!
First impressions: When I first entered the hall, I saw the thing I was hoping to see, it was in front of me, it was glowing, it was DIGITS!!!
I couldn’t help myself, smiled but tried to cover that up!! Geez, the iSlaves over there there were a lot! Anyhow, I though i should go and see what this expo has to offer! So i wondered around. There were some Toshiba laptops sellers, Dell laptops sellers, some junk, Sony cameras, some other junk, quality-net, fast-teleco, and a person that sells iPhones covers (WTH?!!!)
Okay so i knew this expo is not worthy to come to! But i couldn’t help my self, DIGITS WAS CALLING ME!!! So i went there and saw a student asking the salesperson about a 27″ iMac, i stayed and listened until the salesperson said “But this is the best, you cant have any monitor as this big by this price!” i said “You’re not the first to have 27″ monitors, there are cheeper”! he started to say some other stuf until the student asked him how much it costs, he answered “the price starts at 700KD”! We were like WTH?!! Then the salesperson said that’s because the monitor is the PC, the moniter alone would cost around 300KD” we were still like WTH?!! then the student left saying “78 il-3endohom floos zaydah”!
I stayed and asked the salesperson what makes iMac so special, he tried to convince me telling me about its look and its applications and all that stuff. Poor guy, every time he says something, i encounter with what i know and am sure of! There was a war, he was trying to tell me, but i was telling him some other stuff that made him remain quite each time then shifts to another point! Oh don’t look at me! just read
He talked about security, saying that it’s the most secure OS in the whole world, i said “no”, talked about linux and that Mac OS X is based on BSD which is based on Unix, he remained silent!
After some time he got a bit frustrated and asked “Are you an engineering student” i said “no, but i know what im talking about, and you can check online if you don’t feel i’m telling the truth!” then i continued asking! This time i wanted to be sure about the iTunes thingie I’ve been told, so i asked him “If i bought a song using iTunes, can i have it on my desktop” he said “no, and you can only listen to it using iTunes”!! I said okay than what if i want to have it on my handheld, he said that i must have iTunes! And added “this is a good thing, now if you bought a movie, your friend doesnt need to buy it, you can give him your username an..” “AND MY PASSWORD?!!” i said shocked of the idea!!! Then i tried to change the subject, running away from the awkwardness!! So I asked whether iTunes downloads the purchased song when i want to listen to it or is it like live streaming, he said it works like you tube!
Here is when i had all the stuff i wanned to ask! “So you’re telling me i cant listen to it without an internet connection?” he simply said “yes”. Was expected somewhat, Then I explained that what gets buffered on whatever means that it got downloaded. He immediately refused! I said “hey, i know what im talking about!” told him about the trick of the getting youtube videos from the temporary directory! He didnt say i was lying, but he seemed that he didn’t believe me! then he said “It would be really great to be able to do that, just imagine!” I got angry a bit and said “only if i had my netbook …” he said “yea, that would be great”! So i told him to be here tomorrow and I’ll bring my netbook to show it to him! Aby a89 wayhaa!!! He was like “okay”!
Soon we got in another discussion and ended telling him about how linux is going and that some Open Source applications are better than the commercial ones, and mentioned safari!
We continued blablabla until 11:40, it was about to y2then il-6oher so i took my stuff and assured him that I’ll be there tomorrow! He was kinda “okay, i’ll be waiting” and gave me DIGITS card! Before leaving i asked him if i can take a photo and he didn’t mind 🙂
HEY DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT, HE STARTED IT!! AND ALL I WAS SAYING IS THE TRUTH!!!! i know i know, you think im a freak, well you know what, I DON’T CARE!!!! I HAD THE FUN OF 10 YEARS IN ONE HOUR!!!!! btw, i didn’t write everything!
So when i turned around i saw an Indian salesperson selling iPads, i acted dumb and went to him,
Me: *takes the iPad and flips it over and over* There’s no specification written on the box!
Salesperson: Uhh,The specifications are blablabla, basically It’s like a iPhone but only bigger.
Me: *Remembers F-124’s post, hidden LMAO*So how many usb posts does it have?
Salesperson: None sir.
Me: *Opens Mouth* What?!! How am i to transfer my documents and files?!
Salesperson: There is a cable to connect with the PC.
Me: But i cant use my usb flash disk, right?
Me: Then it’s pretty much useless!
Salesperson: Uhh, No sir, you can watch youtube and and browse the web.
Me: But i heard that it doesn’t support flash!!
Salesperson: True, but you can use an iTunes to stream it. (WTH?!)
Me: So i cant browse web pages and watch embedded flash videos at the same time!?
Salesperson: No, you can sir! It’s just like on your computer! (Okay he doesn’t know what he’s talking about)
Me: Okay thank you 🙂
Man, gotta love that Indian accent!!
Then i left the place having the biggest smile in the whole world!! Never smiled like that before! You know, if was to write all what happened(especially with DIGITS salesperson), i wouldn’t be able to publish this post not even tomorrow!!! But i think you can understand how it went, right? Just to let you know how far we went: Avatar, Video Frames , GIMP, PhotoShop, VMs, …there are more 🙂 all in 40 AMAZING MINUTES!!!
