    Thanks for this, Michael. I live in the UK and have not seen this.

    That is so funny.

    I am new to your blog, but I can tell I’m going to glean a great deal of wisdom here…present post not withstanding! Thanks.

        Maybe you should start presenting your usual content in that manner, Mike.

        Not because your content lacks anything but simply because yours would become the funniest ‘serious’ blog around!

    Interesting about technology’s fascinating with fruit. :)

    • http://michaelhyatt.com Michael Hyatt

      What is it with so much technology named after fruit!

      • http://twitter.com/hundredstudio Mark Smith

        Something Seth Godin posted a few years back about naming your company: http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2003/06/naming_a_busine.html
        I think people see fruit as safe. Until now.

      • http://stevencribbs.com Steven Cribbs

        Maybe it is to make people think the product is something that can really sink their teeth into :)

        • http://jeffgoins.myadventures.org Jeff Goins

          Ah, yes. :)

          I want to start inventing unusually large or disporportionate tech gadgets and naming them after spiced or cured meats. A few of my first products would be:

          The Slim Jim
          The Ham Hock
          The Pepperoni

          What a different world that would be. I’d feel much more masculine about answering my “Ham Hock,” as opposed to a Blackberry!

        Maybe it’s a marketing ploy to keep politically correct – call the new technological toy a rib roast, and you’ll lose the vegetarian market.

    Wow. That’s great. And exactly the way my dad reacted when I told him I bought a Blackberry years ago: “Why not go pick one for free?”

  • Lynette Sowell

    What a great Saturday morning chuckle…and love the British humor. It’s all in the timing. As much as I enjoy fruit, alas, I do not have a blackberry or an apple. But I do have windows.

    After spending five hours on the phone with Blackberry this week, I needed this bit of fun! Thanks for sharing :-) Jo Rae

    Ah, British humor (excuse me, humour). Thanks for the laugh on this snowy morning.

    Hilarious!

    I wonder how different the viewing experience is for people from the UK versus people from elsewhere in the world.

    The two comedians in the show are very well known in the UK and I wonder how that changes the experience?

    For me, it was actually a little emotional because I haven’t seen Ronnie Corbett on TV since his long time comedy partner, Ronnie Barker died.

    Thanks for sharing this today.

  • Michael

    Thanks for sharing some humor. It’s a great prescription for life.

    I just shared this with my wife – after catching her breath and gathering herself from near-tears laughter, she commented that “laugh therapy” is just what she needed.

    Thanks Michael!

  • http://jeffgoins.myadventures.org Jeff Goins

    Loved this — hilarious. It made me think: the conversations we have on a regular basis every single day would’ve sounded absurd 10 years ago.

    HAHAHAHA! This skit is GENIUS! I was looking for stuff about “working with Blackberry” and “Disqus” on Google, then this shows up. I had a good laugh watching this! I was actually expecting a page where I can learn about handling stuff from the enterprise on the go, with all those server stuff and CALS. That’s a lot o’ apps, if you ask me. I hope it doesn’t end up freezing… like that. LOL!
