Those New-Fangled Thing-a-ma-bobs.....

I am sending this post from the iPad my school gave me. As such, I have a harder time making this work. It is very convenient, but now I can't seem to do anything without it, and since the technology is still advancing, I can't do anything WITH it, either!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with a new gadget, App, or invention. Tell us what it looks like, what it does, and the best name for marketing it. Points for literary tools used in your description. Basically, this is your advertising pitch.

Good luck, because as far as I know, this thing could easily self-destruct in five seconds!


  1. Case in point. It is impossible for me to figure out how to add a picture on this thing!

  2. I love my new smart phone
    It's really hi-tech.
    There's all kinds of apps
    On my phone I can get.

    I have shopping lists,
    Ring tones,and games galore,
    Even a mini piano! Score!

    But there's one thing I need,
    An app would be great
    If I just had an app
    That could predict my fate.

    Will I get to Hawaii?
    Will I ever lose weight?
    It'd really be helpful
    To not have to wait
    Until these things happen.
    Can't I just find them out?
    It'd make life much easier,
    Of that have no doubt.

    So if you're like me
    Then the future you'll see,
    When you buy this new app
    For a very small fee.
    So get on your phone
    And order this wonder!
    Foresee the future,
    And you'll never blunder!!

  3. Somebody come and play
    Somebody come and play today
    Somebody come and play our game
    You'll not be wrong
    It won't take long
    Somebody come and play today

    (This is a plea to all you players, not an entry)

  4. Hello? Is this thing on? Anyone who wants to play, you have the weekend. Nene may win by default!

  5. OK Delirious and Inklings, at least get on here and tell us you are or aren't going to play!

  6. I want an app that connects with my kids' cell phones and tells me where they are at all times! They might actually have something like this, but I don't want to have to pay a million dollars for it. :D

  7. I don't have a cell phone, so I guess that is why I am drawing a blank on this one.

  8. Inklings, it doesn't have to be about a cell phone. He said an app, gadget, or invention.

  9. I want an app that lets you go anywhere in the world instantly. I'll even get a cell phone if someone comes up with that one.

  10. Okay, this went WAAAAAY too long. I am calling it. Nene was the only one who really went the extra mile, including in her recruitment! Congrats! I look forward to seeing your new game!
