artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: īflip

Sentence: Chalk up another one to late-night marketing. Chuck fell for the come-on for the latest brain-boosting gadget, the iFlip. It promised to expedite the decision-making process. What it turned out to be was an electronic coin flipper, one simple button that activates a randomly-generated CGI coin image and a e-voice that calls out heads or tails. As silly as it sounds Chuck’s life has improved. Net result? A better-looking, smarter girlfriend and a higher-paying job. If only he could decide whether or not to buy the newest model.

Etymology: i (as in iPhone, iPad, iPod) + flip (turn over or cause to turn over with a sudden sharp movement)

"I'm texting you a question," Mary replied. Her friend grabbed the phone away from her and shouted, "Cellurabot, texts are for kids."

Etymology: (from an old cereal commercial that featured a cartoon rabbit: "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids") cellular: cell phone/cell network + rabid: fanatical, extreme + bot: (short for robot) an infected computer that becomes a zombie under the control of a master computer
