This cunning fox has been outsmarted again.

If you do not watch Dora the Explorer (sorry- I mean if your kids don’t watch it) then you will have no idea what this comic is about. To tell the truth – I kind of like it that way.

If however, not knowing is just eating you up inside, then this Swiper mega cut on YouTube may help you figure it out.


Sausage check

Please ensure you always check your meat to make sure you get the full use out of it.

In case you are not aware of the practice, the comic above refers to the fad of using  a Meat Stylus on iPhone & iPad screens.
As these devices have a display that needs conductivity to work, using something like a pen,etc,will not let you use the interface.

Many savvy users quickly figured out that they could use sausages on their touch screens as a stylus,and have it work successfully.
The sausage conducts the bio-electric current and allows the screen to be used without actually touching it with your fingers.

The trend appears to have begun in South Korea when users wanted a solution to using their phones in the winter.
Apparently snack sausages were found to be electrostatically compatible with the iPhone’s capacitive touchscreen, leading many to use them as a “meat stylus” in the cold weather, rather than remove a glove.
And it’s not just a joke – apparently South Korean snack sausage sales soared.

One of the side benefits of this is that the users get to keep their screens fingerprint free, as well as having a tasty snack to use after a hard session of “Angry birds” or “Cut the Rope“.

Touch Screen Haters Club

The future of computing is touch screen technology.

It is a fantastic interface, which offers intuitive navigation, instant interaction and the ability to present experiences in a manner we have never been able to do before.
Soon, everything will have a touch based navigation to it.

This is great news for most of us. Those of us, that is,who have the ability togenerate the touch pressure & bio-electric conduction required to make touchscreens work.
But spare a thought for those who will be unable to use the new technological marvels we are sure to be presented with soon.

The unlucky include:
– aliens who control things just with their minds
– characters with spikes for fingers
– monsters with huge sharp claws
– most hooved animals
– robots with caliper hands
– zombies (but only because they are too dumb)
– dinosaurs

So next time you buy a touch screen device, just think about all these things that won’t be able to enjoy it.
