Ok, just another dumb commercial rant (perhaps I watch too much tv?...hah). Anyway -

Apple commercial where you can't tell if the kid is a boy or a girl (of course). The kid looks like a boy, but has blue nail polish on the nails.

They show the kid doing various things, and at the very end they show the kid lying in a yard doing something on his/her computer.

Then a neighbor comes out and asks the kid, "what are you doing on your computer?"

The kid responds, "What's a computer?"

Sooooo...I guess the point is that stupid people use Apple products?

I think the point is that young people may not know what a computer is w/all the smartphones, tablets, etc out there.

That kid "you can't tell if the kid is a boy or a girl" is a very talented young actress named Hannah Allgood. She's on the show "Better Things" among other efforts. You'll probably be seeing a lot more of her if you can handle it.

In a world where we “have the right” to identify any thing about ours selves any way we want, the computer is now the digital interface. The binary brain.

I am about to start looking for a laptop that can be assigned a cell number and has texting. I haven't looked too hard yet.

Or a tablet that with a word processor and a spreadsheet.

I thought the kid in that commercial was a little boy.

There was an ad a couple years back where the dad think he'll amaze his kid by going back to some seconds ago on the tv, and replaying a sports play. The kid never knew a world where you couldn't do that - lol

I think this cartoon is relevant here.
