or it didn't happen...
Anthropologists claim to have contacted a remote Papua New Guinea tribe which worships a crude effigy of an Apple iPad crafted from the bark of a sacred tree. That humans bow at the altar of Jobs is nothing new, but what makes the case of the Ka'zi exceptional is that the tribe has until now had no contact with the outside …
Seems to just illustrate how jealous of Apple the Register is. Obviously you're still smarting from them blanking you.
Thing is, if you're going to have a pop by running this type of copy, then it has to be biting and funny to have effect. This isn't. It's just boring.
Sorry guys but it's time to try a new tack.
No, you can't write three articles asserting that even hardcore fans are dissappointed, and then turn around and write one saying that the Mac-faithful are worshipping the device in full pathetic force!
Youre allowed to pick one, just one.
P.S. Funny story, though, Lester; enjoyable as always. Thanks,
The team were also studying the K'rud and the No'gud, two neighbouring tribes.
The K'rud seemed to worship a small bespectacled god who they freely admitted had no abilities to bring them anything that the other gods couldn't do better (I believe his name was "Bullg-aites").
The other tribe worshipped the God of low sales - Mntn'Vw. Millions enjoy his free hospitality but no-one is prepared to make the sacrifices (financial and mental) required to use the N'drud.
... "a forehead of polished ivory and four eyes who described to him a magic tablet"
In ancient times just such a being talked to all who would listen of a wonderous small rainbow labeled monolith, whilst traveling in a chariot that was known as the sea five. :)
Hope the Cupertino people are watching as these guys, deep in the jungle, seem to have solved the iBook licensing problems, battery life *and* come up with a material that will keep Greenpeace happy.
The real questions are though, does it come in black and does it require a virgin sacrifice to make it work (oh hang on, that usually only applies to Windows)?
Paris because she knows all about wood
I had a mate who proudly, and repetitively announced his birthday was January 1 (It was New Years eve, and we were waiting for the 'Bongs' from Big Ben). He was a piss-head, and expected folks to buy him a drink in a few moments time. Couple of seconds of mental calculation later, I announced to the gathering "Apt, Johnathan. That means you were conceived on 'All Fools Day' ". Funny, he didn't mention it again.
PS. Nice one, Lester!

Is some dolphins and a man who said he was from guilford but is in fact from somewhere in the vacinity of Beatlujuice for it to be any more tounge in check and off the wall.
What you all forgot is that the great iPad is going to solve world hunger, world peace and find a cure for cancer and that's just this weekend.
If Douglas N Adams were alive today he'd have one but he'd be laughing his head off at this.
It does required a sacrifice to run, a gallon of extra virgin olive oil for it's eco-friendly charger.
Sarah I love the witty retorts.
1) It's bootnotes - not to be taken seriously
2) it's the register bootnotes - why the heck would we do anything but laugh at the stuff here.
3) It's apple / microsoft and at least 5 minutes since they last got "upset" but the other camps fanbois
