Hey, Let's Capitalize on the iphone Frenzy...

We need to move quickly and get in on this frenzy for iphone apps and accessories. Have you seen the lines at your local apple store? Lines? I know…it’s ridiculous. You’d think we were back to fighting over the last tickle-me-elmo or something.


But if these people are dumb enough to stand in line to get into an Apple store, than they’re dumb enough for us to make some quick cash from. For example, take this black elastic band…


Then throw that into a fancy-dancy package and build a little iphone app that displays an eye patch. There you have it….

The ipatch


Let the millions pour in...

You mean that line is for an Iphone? I thought it was a bread line. Geeze do they have a bread app on the I phone?

Quirkyloon said...

I spy an IPatch!

Funny!

Anne said...

what exactly would a bread app do on an iphone, I wonder of gladys's comment.

i didn't wait in line for my iphone, i got one from my hubby.

Jeff said...

Very clever. But I can see that becoming an iSore after awhile.

VE said...

gladys - Well if it was bread (as in money), I might even stand in line

quirkyloon - I spy a quirky commenter...

VE said...

anne - I don't know...toast?

jeff - iSee what you mean...

mama-face said...

LOL. I just got an Iphone this weekend!!! I love it, yes I do. I needed something else to help me withdraw from the real world.

Seriously, I love it. There were no lines though. Lucky me.

Beth said...

Hah! You got me started...how about the iSore, the iBall, the iLash, the iDropper...?
We could make a killing!

subtorp77 said...

If I could catch the spammer that's been hitting everybody( you included, VE ), he/she/it will need two ipatches and some icrutches to go along with the icast....

VE, check your back posts; still doing mine and just had to reboot!!! Look for comments by "disa"...it's been reported...now where's my ihammer?

Kurt said...

So far, the iPhone (or more accurately, an iPhone app) has found me a bathroom when I was downtown.
On the minus side, you can't hear the other person during phone calls. So it's weak in the phone department.

Maureen said...

iThink iWill stick to my Tickle Me Elmo.... yes, iGot Daughter one way back then. And we still have him.

Megan said...

iPopping!

lifeshighway said...

I think an i-patch would be a wonderful accessory for carrying my i-earphones.

VE said...

mama-face - I was tempted by it. I like the fact that it has large text that I can actually see. But I opted for a netbook computer and a simple razor phone. I'd be too distracted by all the apps and would probably just lose track of where I am and what I'm doing.

VE said...

beth - Boy, you are ready to capitalize on the frenzy! Let the foolish on in with their money!

VE said...

subtorp77 - I saw that. How'd you know it hit me? They seemed to hit a bunch of older posts.

VE said...

kurt - That's convenient for the time. I usually just do as most NYers and pee on tourists...

VE said...

maureen - Now why does it not surprise me to learn that you got a Tickle me Elmo?

VE said...

megan - Nice. I'm impressed that you could come up with another one after Jeff and Beth hogged so many catchy ones.

VE said...

lifeshighway - Might as well utilize the ears too. Get to work on the nose. It's always left out...

Elizabeth said...

Will that iPatch help you pass the iChart in the Dr.'s office?

subtorp77 said...

VE, I haf vays off no-ink ja?

Just kiddin'; actually I have a bad habit of forgetting to unsubscribe from posts. Don't know why(it)was only going after the older posts...hmmmm guess I'll have to open an i-vestigation...

Baino said...

iHave two Geek friends who queued once at the Sydney store opening to get a T shirt then flew to Melbourne to their opening to get T shirts for their girlfriends. Now that's dedication iThink. Although until it makes a decent cup of tea in the morning iLstick with my normal phone, it only makes calls and takes messages.

VE said...

elizabeth - iDoubtit

VE said...

subtorp77 - I think it has something to do with google. Those are some of my most-hit posts by general google queries. Also, I don't have that stupid password protection thingy on.

VE said...

baino - iSuggest they don't wear them. They can sell them for thousands to collectors later on!

Uncivil said...

How about an I-Fvck tee shirt?

Ronda Laveen said...

Hmmmm, iMagine that!

Mrsupole said...

idon't want an iphone cause idon't want to get into those ilines.

Maybe those ipeople need to learn the iword ipatience. What the icrap do ineed to put up with imore icrap that idoesn't iwork iproperly.

God bless.

ReformingGeek said...

I must get an iPhone so I can stand in line for cool stuff like that.

Um....no.

Serena said...

As I've told you before, you are a marketing genius. If I can get the patch without the phone, I'll take one.;)

Jaime said...

it's amazing how much better a product can be with a simple rope. think about the wonders it did for bars of soap

The Incredible Woody said...

Geez, it's a wonder you aren't a multi-millionaire already with great ideas like this!!

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I'm so behind the times. I missed the line up.

VE said...

uncivil - Ha! In this economy we'd probably more likely have "I'm Fvcked!"

VE said...

ronda - Yes, I can see there is no end to the "i" words we can come up with...

VE said...

mrspupole - Well said. As I speak I'm dealing with crap on my own icomputer at home hoping to avoid a reinstall because of some stupid virus. Luckily I have my little netbook and wireless...

VE said...

reforminggeek - Good for you...you're definitely reforming!

VE said...

serena - You mean an actual patch? Amazing. Why didn't I think of that? ;)

VE said...

jaime - Soap on a Rope! Whatever happened to that trend? Dang, forgot all about that. Perhaps we should start other rope products. Twinkies on a rope; just in case you're stranded; they're always fresh!

Dalton J. Fox said...

I can't seem to find the iPatch app on my phone.

VE said...

incredible woody - I know, I know. Someday when I actually accomplish something...

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - We sent it to your task app on your iphone. Oh...that's right, you need to have one first to get the notice...oops.

VE said...

dalton - That's becasue I haven't sold it yet!

Janna said...

I'm so poor I can't afford an iPhone OR an iPatch.

Nor can I afford to go to France and see the iFel Tower.

Alex L said...

See I know its a joke, but I have no doubt that would sell its arse off.

VE said...

janna - Don't worry; we'll email you a virtual video as if you were there!

alex - That's the sad part...

Dee said...

i love my IPHONE, working on my 3 page of apps

VE said...

dee - Well, I'm glad you do. Now you just need a VE ipatch for it! Besides, who wants to carry it around in a purse or pocket when they can be like a pirate!

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

If I were missing an eye I would totally buy that.

VE said...

arizona - Good point!

Carla said...

With all your great ideas, you should be up to billions by now. Hope you've patented all these ideas.

VE said...

carla - That would take initiative and investment. Doh...
