The timing of Apple’s recent announcement of the iPhone 4 in conjunction with the pending arrival of Father’s day might be heralded either as sheer coincidence or in the collective opinion of fathers nationwide, the ultimate Tech Gear loving tribute to Dads. A celebration marking a time that men will nostalgically reminisce as “the great one.” As such I decided to craft an anonymous letter for fathers to use in order to enlighten the masses about the potentially glorious day that awaits dear old Dad.
Dear Beloved Family,
Let me preface this letter by declaring my unconditional love for all of you. My heart, no, my entire being, I pledge to my loved ones. Without you, I am merely just a man. Yet with you, I am graced with the noble calling of fatherhood. By the strength of your love, I strive each and every day to become the best husband and father I can be. That being said, I want an Apple iPhone 4.
You see, I really do appreciate the nifty gifts I’ve received over the years for father’s day. But let’s face it, there’s a limit to just how many bad ties, silly shirts, mediocre theme restaurant food, and greeting cards one can muster. Think of the negative impact on the nation’s landfills. Good intentions are great, but they make one heck of a huge pile, don’t they? And you just know that some of those ties get washed out to sea. Think of all the dolphins and penguins dressed badly? We’re talking an ecological fashion disaster here.
Now with an Apple iPhone 4, you’re bringing years of fun in one ingenious little portable package. Imagine the memorable times at the park, or a school recital, or your mother attempting to prepare another gourmet meal in the kitchen (we’re rooting for you honey!) all captured in pristine 720p HD video. Did I mention the iPhone 4 also captures still frames using a new 5 megapixel camera coupled with an LED flash? Fantastic for low light photos of the kids blowing out birthday candles! Plus you can now tap focus to make sure you target your subject with accuracy. Do you understand what I’m implying? Less likelihood for dear old Dad to miss an important shot!
I could go on and on about the impressive new features of this wonderful family gizmo. Yes, it will be ultimately used by the whole family. Games looks insanely great on the device with the new high resolution screen as well as an infinite amount of Apps for all of our interests.
And lastly, we can make use of a fantastic video chat feature Apple named FaceTime. Since many of our friends and family will also have an iPhone 4, we now see each other in real time anywhere we go. For example, the kids will love seeing their Mommy while she’s away on business and the Grandparents will enjoy seeing the children when they can’t stop by. And since the iPhone 4 is equipped with two cameras, one front facing, the other in the back, you can choose what you want to display. No more missing out on “ya gotta see this!” moments.
Well, thanks for reading this. Let’s make this Father’s Day a family day to remember. Now go get me that Apple iPhone 4 won’t you?
