Remember when guys used to use ploys to meet women by bringing a baby or a little dog to the park? You'd walk the baby or dog in the park and these women would come up to you and exclaim, "OOO He's SO cute!", and then you'd strike up a conversation and off you go.
Two times now it's happened to me. Well, not exactly in the same way. I've been travelling a lot and am going through airport security like it's going out of style. When you put your stuff into the X-ray machine, you are required to take your laptop out and put it in its own tray.
So I take out my stylin' Sony VAIO VGN-T250P, one of those super slim, very compact laptops that Sony makes. It is a few models behind the current TX series, but no less cool. The top panel of the VAIO is a beautiful dark blue. It is only 1" thick and the screen is smaller than normal, and also with a compact keyboard. But with builtin WIFI, a classic super bright LCD, Intel Mobile Pentium running at 1.2 GHz, and the ability to burn DVDs makes this little PC a joy to use. And being only 3.1 lbs., this baby doesn't hurt my back lugging it around.
I let it go through the X-ray scanner and then I hear "OOOO That's SOOO cute!" I turn and see a woman admiring my laptop and we strike up a short conversation as we get our things.
So far this has happened twice to me! All I can say is, the world has changed.
At one time, you'd need to walk a dog to attract a woman to have a conversation with you. Now all you need is a stylin' Sony VAIO.
Geeks of the world unite! Your time has come!
