iPad 2 vs Kidney
Apple iPad has beaten every tablet on market to date (My opinion), no matter how much HTC, Samsung and the likes of them spend on Reasearch and Development, technology and developers, iPad is still the Maybach.
Recently the news broke that a kid sold his kidney for an iPad 2 and later regrets the transaction ( Read story here ), so it made me think, till date, the iPad 2 even managed to beat a God created gadget for those that believe in God but let’s not get into that. God must be crossed right now with Steve Jobs for creating such a unique gadget that it’s even worth a Gadget god created to filter our blood of water and wastes. Lets compare the two:
iPad 2 :
Amongst other features and specs you can get it in the WiFi only model and WiFi + 3G model
Storage: 16GB, 32GB, 64GB models.
Display: 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology
1024×768-pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch
Processor: 1GHz dual-core Apple A5 custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip
Back camera: Video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio; still camera with 5x digital zoom
Front camera: Video recording, VGA up to 30 frames per second with audio; VGA-quality still camera
Conclusion: Every body wants one (well in my circle of friends and family) however, you can live without one and not lose sleep or go through any pain depending on how addicted to gadgets you are.
The kidneys perform a wide range of vital functions in the healthy body, such as:
Removing wastes and water from the blood
Balancing chemicals in your body
Helping control blood pressure
Helping to produce red blood cells
Producing vitamin D, which keeps the bones strong and healthy
Conclusion: Without both of your kidneys, you could die (i’m not a doctor so please don’t argue with me over this). You might live with one but not healthily and after giving one away, you might not enjoy playing with your iPad 2 while dead, well you could say you owned one tho. Oh did i mention it comes in all shapes and sizes just like the iPad?
So in summary, i think iPad 2 has some control over us, or shall i say technology has some control over us when it’s designed, created and marketed correctly like Apple does. Christians would say Apple is a symbol of temptation….hmmm.
