Fill it up

As it was extricated delicatley from its waxed cellophane packaging it slipped out with a sigh. I peeled off the protective film from the screen and booted the item into life. Its hard drive whirred and purred and the colour screen welcomed me to its new and improved OS, wow.

It is a blank page, it is a baby awaiting instruction, it is devoid of data..

Im going to fill this thing up now, going to educate it, going to create a small metropolis of information in it which I shall randomly access at various future moments for my personal delectation. .

Turning it on for the first time

Turning the baby on, it sparks into life, my sparlking new device sings its startup sound and streams an animated intro to me. When this electric dust has settled it emits a warm colour and entreats me to fondle its touch sensistive screen. I so and it responds with alacrity at my fingers’ caress.

Yes it is alive and responsive. Turn it on and you are fully in control and master of all that you hold.

It sings, yes it sings to me in vibrant tones and vivid hues.

It slips neatly back into its smooth sheath. Ensconced in dark it bleeps once and goes quiet and lifeless.
