Too Many Choices

Today’s Rant: Would Amazon and Apple please merge or at least sinfully cohabit. Amazon has Kindle Fire. Apple has IPAD. Kindle has exclusive magazine contracts and books. Apple has I-Tunes (more than a 1000 that I have already bought). At some point if not now (I don’t know) I-Pad will make telephone calls. Both have games and videos. Does anybody talk to anybody else without standing on your head and twiddling your thumbs at the same time? … of course not. That would make people happy.
All I want is ONE thing that will let me read, write, listen, and call the few people who are still talking to me. Is that too much to ask?


Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—
No! no! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right.)
Howe'er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)
