The gizmo is causing excitement around the globe. Across Dificult Country foreign correspondent Ismail Mat Taib enthused:
“I thought this may be back engineered from mysterious technology developed by the ancient Atlanteans before that great kingdom submerged unnaturally to the bottom of the sea,” said villager Taib, who had been herding cattle near the beach. “Larger, smaller, by touching the screen? Holy crap, are you kidding me?”Obese teen Shauna Gerow paused between bites to observe, “It’s almost something to do rather than eat. Almost.”
Oddly named Madagascar wildlife researchers Félix Rakotondraparany and Amyot Kofoky were impressed:
“You could upload a picture of a sucker bat on it,” said Rakotondraparany, “then make it larger and smaller, by touching the screen.” Added Kofoky, “You could even put a picture of a sucker bat being gently cradled in the arms of your friend Steven M. Goodman on it. Then you could make it larger, smaller – just by touching the screen.”Not to take anything away from Prometheus, but Prometheus is history, and the future (larger) is now (smaller), and it is beyond our wildest dreams (by touching a screen).
UPDATE: There is no Apple iPhone.
