So I'm on a quick weekender with three hiking buddies, and on the second day we stop at a gorgeous overlook. I pull out my new iPhone 5 and exclaim, "My new iPhone has this really cool panorama feature, you just pan the camera and it creates a panorama pic for you, you don't have to stitch it together or anything! Cool, huh!
Whereby Ryan, holding his Galaxy 3s, responds dryly, "Yeah, very cool. I thought so too when I got that on my phone. Last year....."
Suddenly, I find myself in the middle of a Samsung commercial:
Me: Look at what my cool new iPhone can do!
Ryan: My phone's been able to do that for a year!
Fade to text: The next big thing is already here......
Thinking about this as we continued on our way, I suddenly began singing, to the tune of Oklahoma:
on my iPhone isn't all that new
Samsung's been doing it for a year
Or so I hear
With these Apple products I am through!
When I'm done, Tony quietly says: "Yeah, but who do you think the chicks gather around, the guy holding the iPhone or the guy holding the Samsung?"
I pondered that for a moment more, and then belted out:
Is where my iPhone really, really shines
I'll get all the gals
Not my Samsung pals
When the beauties see me holding iPhone 5!
Yeah, hiking with me is always an adventure......
Here's the panorama shot I took:
