Imagine a World Without Apple, Bloggers, Google ..

David Pogue- New York Times Tech Columnist invites you to grab your piano and sing along.
Imagine (sung to the tune of John Lennon’s “Imagine”)


Imagine there’s no Apple,
No products that begin with “i,”
No monthly iPod models,
No Apple stores to get you high.

Imagine all the people
Finding other things to do !

Imagine there’s no bloggers…
It isn’t hard to do!
No viruses or spyware,
No weekly Windows patches, too

Imagine all the people
Learning to get a life…


You may say it’d be a nightmare
Without Google, Mac or Dell
We might have real conversations–
But the world would be dull as hell!

Imagine no new cellphones;
Kiss console games goodbye.
No David Pogue or Mossberg
To tell us what to buy.

Imagine all the people
Getting some exercise!


You may say that I’m a loony
But rest assured I’m almost done.
I’m pretty sure it’ll never happen
So we nerds can live as one!

    beautiful song – tragic death – scary world – more scary without all my gadgets but…but i will survive ajay. so will you. man has a great “adapter” in himself that helps him accept almost everything (i said almost).

    i am tolerating stupidity and meanness in others – how is that for a super adapter?

    Lao Aju

    Only a techie like Pogue could come up with this song. Incredible.

    Indeed, Michelle, There is a super adapter in all of us. Our insides are no different than the Tribals in Africa and Amazon who have never seen a telephone in their lives.

    Bon Visite à paris. Lao Aju , we must visit Paris together.
