  • Howdy Guys, Has anyone noticed that if you compare the style of dress and personal grooming habits of the people in the ads to the style of dress and personal grooming habits of the founders of Apple & Micro$oft the grin on your face gets larger? 'til later, Hyperhip

    What We Think about the New Mac Ads
  • Howdy Dr. gmathur, I refer you to Gene Steinberg's Mac Night Owl story of today, Apple Technical Support: Ready to Take a Dive? http://www.macnightowl.com/ You need to forward your views to him also. I'm sure you thought my ignorance was just awful. I'm a Spanish speaking Texan for goodness sakes. I don't "speak" the same kind of English as you do. I don't "hear" the same kind of English as you do. In fact I don't "hear" as (fast) as you most likely speak. But I can laugh, at myself, and with my neighbors for the strange little quirks we have. I don't have time to look for something to take umbrage about. When you're a Texan where Spanish was spoken at home, there are plenty of jokes about what you sound like, some of them darn funny. By the way, while working my way through school I worked as a hospital aid carrying bedpans and providing patience care. My favorite RN was Miss Myra, who lived with two other Indian RNs in a house trailer so she could send most of her check home. We had the best times laughing about what we thought the other had said. Some nights (11 to 7 shift), a pen and paper were all that saved us. Ms. Myra would have hurt herself laughing at my original post. She would giggle for an hour if I made a face at her and said shicken. (You may need someone to explain that one to you.) The only one who didn't seem to like her was an male Indian OBGYN. Ms. Myra never did make me understand about caste and educational differences. Take it down, leave it up. It makes me not a hill of beans. Maybe we can agree about Macs. I like them. You?
  • Hiring In India: Mujibar was trying to get a job in India. The Personnel Manager said, "Mujibar, you have passed all the tests except one, unless you pass it you cannot qualify for this job". Mujibar said, "I am ready." The Manager said, "make a sentence using the words green, pink and yellow". Mujibar thought for a few minutes then said, "Mr. Manager, I am ready." The Manager said "go ahead." Mujibar said, "The telephone goes green, green, green and I pink it up and say 'yellow, this is Mujibar.'" Mujibar now works for the Dell-Oops-Apple Call Center for computer problems. No doubt you have spoken to him. I used to love razzing my Dull using friends with this one. Fun while it lasted.
