Love Thy Gizmo

with 5 comments

Apparently, the details of BCB4 Day-2 were to be compiled here in this very post.

But in todays fast paced, cut-throat (add more bombastic adjectives) world that would be an unpardonable offense considering the fact that it has been more than a week since the event culminated. So, shrugging it off as an old story, I hereby skip it and instead have a tale of “love and sweat and toil”

Appreciations solicited 🙂

Long long ago there was a guy who wanted a laptop for himself. He surveyed the market and zeroed in on a couple of deals unaware of destiny’s subtle moves. He had heard about the Apple products and how cool, sleek, sexy (tons of adjectives can be added here) they were. He happened to get his hands on what was called an iBook but has been rechristened and re-engineered to MacBook since 2006. What more … it was love at first sight!!

He bought it and took care of it and flaunted it (well, not really) whenever possible. He even gave it (actually them – himself, the MacBook and the iPod) a name – “Trinity”. But as time progressed, the MacBook started to show signs of aging. It developed a shabby appearance and the guy didn’t care. He had taken it for granted.

One fine day realization dawned upon him and he ventured into the neighborhood market only to return with a pack of ear-buds/an eraser/a cotton roll and a liquid detergent. Unsure of what his efforts would yield, he devoted a full one hour to the task at hand and the results were just amazing 😀

He had found lost love!
See for yourself –

Remember the before/after photographs in the the VLCC or Vibes ads. More often that not the Before snap is a front pose whereas the After one is a side pose. 😉

On the same lines, I have taken the liberty of using a zoomed in and a zoomed out snap.
