Steve Jobs, the new Tommy Cooper?

The late, great Tommy Cooper once joked: “I went to the doctor the other day. I said ‘Doctor, it hurts when I do this’. ‘Well don’t do it, then’.”Steve (Tommy Cooper) Jobs.jpg

Perhaps Steve Jobs is a secret fan when he said, “Just avoid holding it that way“. Maybe he was tempted to add, “Jus’ like that. Not like this, like that.”

Dipping into the Tommy Cooper Joke Book, I guess future comments may include:

So I went to another doctor. He said ‘Say Aaaaaah.’ I said, ‘Why?’ He said, ‘My iPhone’s just died.'”

I took my iPad to the optician. I said, ‘Every time I turn it on I get double vision’. So he gave me an eye-patch. 

This guy’s in his car, driving along, and his boss rings up on his iPhone and says, ‘You’ve been promoted.’ The guy swerves. The boss rings up a second time and says, ‘You’ve been promoted again.’ He swerves again. He gets a third call and his boss announces, ‘You’re managing director.’ He swerves off the road and into a tree. A policeman comes up and says ‘What happened to you?’ and he replies, ‘I careered off the road.’

    It depends how old your daughter is. If she's a teenager then an iPhone or an Android phone would probably please her. Younger children tend to lose stuff or break it so a media player would be best. Personally, I like the Sansa Clip+ from SanDisk if all she needs is an MP3 player, FM radio and recorder. If she wants to look at pictures or watch films as well, then an Apple iPod (pricey) or Creative Zen MX or Sansa Fuze are all worth considering.
