Technically speaking!

No matter what amount of labour and research goes into a product, how extensively its put to use determines the overall customer satisfaction. There are umpteen untold use for a product which is not covered in its tech spec.

When you get a laptop you want to drill down to every detail on the spec to ensure ur pc comes with all the latest features.
Once you get it , Internet explorer is the only thing you could ever think of, before even the system is booted.Such was the case until I discovered that the webcam can be used as a dressing table mirror.

Before you begin playing Wii, there are certain strict instructions to the user, which doesnot include , 'Please dont take the couch for your convenience while playing snowbowling'.When my first-junior wanted some of my time, the
second-little-one had a good sleep without being prodded.

I can be a music composer someday, because my cellphone plays a musicnote for every random key I press.

wow ! An iPod can read e-books too, Ofcourse, after a lot of hardwork and eye-strain.

Footnote:
Customer feedback forum- not just about ranting our dissappointments but also for sharing the sweet surprises included in the package.

Webcam as mirror!!! Neat use.

Coincidentally, was watching 'The Devil wears Prada' y'day and one of the girls in the movie rushes to her PC (a Mac, no prizes for guessing!), prances before it, gets the webcam on and dabs lipstick on hearing that the big boss is on the way to office, ahead of schedule. :-)

Besides, your post is true. You build something and someone will find a completely lateral use for it other than what it was meant for. Sometimes wacky, sometimes wow!. There was even a iPhone based concert, just using iPhones. Well, the power of technology to be used whatever way it can be used.

multitasking is simultaneous handling of more than one task.

I am not responsible for the allusions from your end. (like the standard clause "Terms and Conditions apply") :-D

Women are women! Aedho sonna, ennaththayo purinjukkareenga. :-)
[blasphemic statement ends]

I related to what you told, in a movie I had just seen. :-) illainna naan yaen adhai quote pannaraen. Aside, that movie is good.

On Nokia, agreed. but no one gave a concert using the composer in Nokia. But using iPhones, someone gave public concerts. adhathaan sonnaen.

hi-fi build-up? naanu? ouch!
