A few days back, My iPhone died on me !! Blame it on the newly activated 3G in my mobile. So, there I was - waiting in the lobby with nobody to talk n with an iPhone on 1% charge and 45 mins of waiting to go. Mind went nuts.
The Sprinkle oil - Trinkle madness idea:
iPhone's got an awesome glassy 3.5 inch screen. Not much use powered off ?! Think different. Rub a little oil over the screen (tip - there is always some oil left in your forehead n nose :P) and then the magic begins.
The glassy screen coupled with the oil immersion makes the screen a perfect slate !! You can write anything you want with your finger n tilt the phone to get a good angulation with a light source and see your writings sparkle in a thousand different colors against the black screen !! (Should I patent this awesome idea ?!)
Your name, her/his name with a heart arrow symbol in the middle - you can keep on looking at it in different angles & different colors and you will never think about charging your iPhone ever :P
Use the built in spy cam:
True fact !! iPhone comes with a built in spy cam. That too when the screen is off. Listen to me you dupid bugger Steve Jobs n market your product better !!
For this procedure rub off all the oil from the previous procedure ( n with that her name too :( ). Now, Find a cute gal nearby :P Now remember this..
the angle of reflection is equal to the angle of incidence
Tilt the iPhone n focus your screen in such a way that the light rays reflected from the cute gal falls directly on your iPhone screen. Ogle your way thro the rest of the waiting time :)
The Fake Phone Call:
Oldest trick in the book. But, still always works !! especially when the other people around you have now, by this time, after seeing u tilt n twist your phone, have concluded you as a weird dude. A fake phone call might bring some amount of normalcy to the scenario. Major Tip - Even if your iphone has only 1% charge, don't take a chance. 'Always in silent mode, when making a fake phone call'
- Rule no. 1. You might also speak 'peter' engilish n confirm that you are a creepy guy or talk normally as you usually do to a friend.
The killer instinct:
I hope by now, I've convinced you that I'm a better marketer that Stevie Jobs. Yup !! I can even sell a dead iPhone :P ha ha... Enough of my mokka. Read n survive.
