I Love This Advertising

Sunday night, we went out for dinner to Fuddrucker’s. While my wife was getting the kids’ drinks, Joshua, my 4 year old, leaned over to me to ask if he could touch my cup. I said "sure" and slid it over to him. He put his finger on it and thanked me. I asked him "Did that do something for you? Did it make you feel better somehow?" He said it did, when Caleb, my 3 year old, asked to touch the cup as well. I obliged, and a game of me sliding the cup back and forth across the table and them touching it erupted. Somehow that was a lot of fun for the three of us until my wife got back and gave us a "What the heck do you think you’re doing?" look.

That comes to mind when I saw this.From Crackberry.com:



Having been issued a BlackBerry 7130 from work (did I ever actually post that blog entry?) I’ve gotten much more interested in the platform. I think I can answer the Storm’s question as "yes, I want to touch you." I have no idea what will happen when I do. Will I get a shock? Will I drink the Cool-Aid and jump platform from Windows Mobile and AT&T? Or will I find that I just touched a plastic case full of IC chips and a really cool touch screen?

One of my coworkers is planning to get the Storm. I’ll wait to touch that one.
