ViewSonic gTablet 10.1" Multi-touch Tablet

by Wootbot

Good-bye… sort-of

Hello Diane. If you’re watching this video on my ViewSonic gTablet, it means that I’ve left. Well, at least, maybe that’s what it means…

But, I guess, it also might not. I could be right in the other room. You could have just seen my gTablet sitting here, and picked it up to surf the web or watch a movie on its vibrant 10.1” capacitive touch screen and noticed this file. I may have just finished recording it and left it open. I might be walking up to you right now, saying “Oh honey, don’t watch that…”

So, if you find this it means I might have left. BUT only if you haven’t seen me in a while. So, if I just walked into the bathroom, like, a minute ago, don’t go charging in there screaming, “Wait! Don’t leave me!” Because I’ll probably just be on the toilet or something and then that would just a whole second layer of awkward.

And, by the way, it’s not like, I’m planning on leaving. This video is just kind of a “just in case” thing. Like, we’re happy right now, but just in case things go wrong, and I run-away and forget to pack my gTablet, I want you to have some explanation.

And if I do remember to pack my gTablet – which I probably will, because heck, I’m the one who bought this thing. I deserve to keep it, after all! I mean, what do you expect? A present? You think that, if things go sour between us, I’m going to give you my tablet, that I’m just going to let you tell all your friends that you set the high scores on all the games I’ve got on this thing? That I’d let you say that you found all these cool Android apps that you can navigate between with ease, thanks to the gTablet’s instinctive design? WELL THINK AGAIN, MISSY!

Okay, I’m sorry. I got a little off track there. I didn’t mean to yell. All I meant to say was, in the likely event that I take my gTablet with me, I’ll definitely email this video to you. So, at the beginning when I said, “if you’re watching this video on my ViewSonic gTablet,” just imagine there was a little “or you just opened it as an email attachment” tagged onto there, okay? Or that would be a pretty big attachment, wouldn’t it? Maybe I’ll put it on a USB drive or something.

You know what, why are we splitting hairs over this? Do you see what you do to me, Diane? I can never get anything done! It’s like, I pick up my ViewSonic gTablet with the simple goal of using its built-in camera to record a video saying good-bye in case I run away, and you just get me so turned around! Well, you know what, Diane? I’m sick of it! I can’t live like this! I can’t handle all the confusion, all the negativity! I’m leaving! I’M LEAVING AS SOON AS I SOON AS I FINISH RECORDING THIS VIDEO! AND I’M TAKING THIS GTABLET WITH ME! AND WHAT’S MORE: I PROBABLY WON’T EVEN SHOW YOU THIS VIDEO! WHICH MEANS THIS HAS ALL BEEN FOR NOTHING! THANKS DIANE! THANKS FOR WASTING MY PRECIOUS TIME!

Oh crap! You’re knocking on the bathroom door! What is it honey?


No I wasn’t yelling at you! Well… not really…
