I am thinking of developing a new and revolutionary handheld device. It will be called the iCan – aptly named to leverage off a famous fruit company’s brand. This is truly a neat device, if I may say so myself. It’s powered by brain waves rather than the more conventional battery (which is oh-so last century technology), and has a touch screen that responds appropriately to any part of your body – not just your finger.
The beauty of the iCan is that it doesn’t actually do anything, because it’s up to you to make it do whatever you like – hence the name iCan. Now I know that some people would baulk at paying good money for something as revolutionary as the iCan so I am also developing another device, at the other end of the spectrum, the weCan – pronounced wiican. This device is designed so that lots and lots of people working together can make the device do something useful – hence the name weCan. Unfortunately the weCan, while in itself not an expensive item, will probably end up costing you millions of dollars in consulting fees.
