Kodak and Talking TomCat
Our old friend Kodak of Kodak and 3-Perf went to the bridge yesterday. He was 15 years old, a diabetic and just diagnosed with lymphoma in his kidneys, stomach and lymph nodes. We are sad to say good-bye but we're relieved he didn't linger and suffer. A hug, purrs and tail wags for his grieving family.
This is a Talking TomCat iPhone application video for those of you who have an iPhone. We think the application is cute except we do not agree with including the whapping/falling down part. It's cute to watch him repeat what is said, or for the user to stroke him to hear him purr, or to feed him milk, but we don't think any application that includes any type of violence - even mild violence - should be sold.
But basically, we wonder why anyone would want to use such an application. It must be for those who have too much time on their hands. Those who don't blog, aren't hooked on Facebook or Twitter, or ... Wait. Maybe it's a conversation starter for shy people waiting on a bus or standing in a long line at the checkout counter?
We don't have to worry about it. Jan doesn't have an iPhone so if we hadn't seen this video, we wouldn't even know the Talking TomCat application exists. And if we didn't make this post, you probably wouldn't either.
