Meet The New Boss, Same As The Old Boss

Sometimes I like to go to the coffee shop and watch the iPad owners try to pretend .ogg files don’t exist.

It’s fun to sit there, blasting out the brand new Fleet Foxes and waiting for Skinny Jeans Monroe to say “Wow, great sound, right? Did you get it from the Apple Store?” I always get a great big smile and say “Oh, no, this is my own rip. It’s in .ogg. That’s an obscure file format, you probably haven’t heard of it.” and then they start making sad faces and have to pull a Flaming Lips t-shirt over their heads to hide the tears. Let me tell you, there’s no word to describe the rush when that happens.

And maybe that’s why “the feeling of out-hipstering a hipster” isn’t included on the features list. Go on, take a look. See? Embedded speaker, Li-Polymer battery, MicroSD Card Slot, USB 2.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, a built-in Microphone, plays DivX, Xvid, H.263, MPEG4, Ogg and Flac, plus Netflix (if you’ve got a subscription) and thousands of other Android apps. But nowhere on that list does it say a thing about upsetting hipsters. And yet, it never ever gets old!

Like the time I was streaming the pre-release of Cults via the Samsung Galaxy S 8GB 5” Wi-Fi’s built in Adobe Flash support? Some chick with a nose ring and a Superfriends t-shirt heard it and walked up, all “Wow, dude! Is that a zero-day torrent?” and I was all “Nope! That doesn’t even exist yet! It’s on the web! Here’s the url so you can listen too!” and she got all happy and then boom, her iCessory couldn’t play it! She started acting like she was only ever interested ironically, but I saw how she pressed her used Jack Kerouac close to her face and pulled her hoodie tight, so no one would notice her angry blushing. And she knew I saw it too. She finally just stormed out to be cool somewhere else, giving me the biggest glare as she passed by my table. And me? I just smiled my sweetest smile.

Trust me, in the right neighborhood this Samsung Galaxy S 8GB 5” Wi-Fi can be more entertaining than Deerhunter and Best Coast combined.
