Well my friends, it seems the impossible does sometimes happen, and given the right technology it can even come to your attention.
My hand was shaking when I dialed my friend’s number on the phone.
“Jerome” I shrieked as he answered on the other side, “You are not going to believe this…”
“I know” he answered calmly.
“How?!” I wondered and then… “Wait a minute! WHAT do you know?”
“A Dodo bird has been sighted”
“Yes” I jumped, “Genieo told me. It just brought it up for me… But how did you…?
“After our last conversation about your Dodo bird interest, I tried to browse for some information on it, just to test Genieo you know, and right as rain, it brought it up for me as well”
As it turns out, a professor Charles Diddly-McFly who happens to be the highest authority on the subject, as well as a known misanthrope, has been keeping a Dodo bird watch somewhere at the end of the world, on which he wrote a daily blog describing his findings – not something anybody is likely to come across on the web, but then professor Diddly-McFly doesn’t give a Dodo’s behind on who reads him really. So luckily for me, Genieo found his blog for me and impossible as it may sound, the man is actually tracking a Dodo bird as we speak.
“I’ve got my bag packed” I informed Jerome “and I’m heading for the coordinates the old hag has just published in his blog. Care to join me?”
“I’m afraid I can’t” answered Jerome, “I’m leaving soon myself for a demo presentation of Genieo we’re giving in Palm Desert. We’ve just made it compatible with iPhone and we’d like to tell the world about it.”
“And a good thing too” I agreed, “it would be lovely if other people could share my fortune. I have one problem though and I wonder if you can help me”
“What is it?” asked my friend.
“Well, as Diddly-McFly is my only source on this, and I have to keep track on his blog while I’m looking for him and the Dodo at the end of the world, which may not have proper internet connection as one may expect, I was wondering if you could track his blog for me and I’ll call you once in a while for an update”
“I’d love too” answered Jerome as a good friend should, “However, you don’t really need me for this. You can follow your Genieo yourself from your own iPhone from wherever you are”
“What? My iPhone? Why didn’t you say?”
“I just did” he replied and indeed I couldn’t argue. He did mention something about Genieo, Palm Desert and iPhone which got lost in my Dodo excitement.
“Are you serious?” I tried to redeem some dignity.
“Yes” he let me have it.
“Good then” I settled the matter, “How do I make it work for me?”
“I’m coming over” replied Jerome, “It’ll take a minutes to setup”
“Thank heaven for technology” I exclaimed excited.
“Is your iPhone’s battery fully charged?” asked prudent Jerome.
