Tekkie Tekkie Muna (hold your horses, or in this case “iPhones” – better yet my iPhone 5), I’m just going to brag about this new toy I have. But this will just be a “teaser” for the meantime, because I don’t want to be called “mayabang” or “may yabang”.
Nowadays, real “Tekkies” first go through a geeky process before trying out for the first time a recently bought or newly acquired gadget that’s still virginal in its box or packaging – or any similar scenario where we get to try out a cool device for the first time.
There’s this initial process called “unboxing” where we take step-by-step pictures or videos of the opening of the box, the discovering of the manuals and accessories, sometimes the freebies, and the first look of the gadget itself.Then take pictures/videos of the gadget from all sides highlighting its various parts and features.
Finally the turning on, and actual demonstration of its capabilities, strengths and weaknesses, if any. Did I mentioned there’s the commentaries that goes along at every part of the entire process. If its pictures were taking, we may even have text, captions or notes below them.
It’s truly a fun way to devirginize our new gadget and proudly introduce “her” to the social media world, and quite historical and memorable indeed. The recorded “unboxing” process would now forever be immortalized as part of our geeky lives. Plus we get to flaunt to our friends that we’re totally “in” and “tekkie.”
Tekkie Tekkei Muna, I was not really bragging for I believe a lot of you “tekkies” out there also have one of this marvelous unit.
When many of our countrymen are saying or sighing “Hanggang pangarap na lang ba na makahawak ng iPhone?”, ever thought of donating your old iPhone models to the less fortunate?
Do something good so that you will feel really high in spirits by giving the less fortunate a chance to “tweet” you and play “Temple Run”. …hey wait, isn’t that my old iPhone 4S in that “Tambunting” pawnshop?
