Iflip

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)

Ebrainsupport

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: e brain sup port

Sentence: After the heavy use of electronic devices, multimedia cell phones, greyberries and computers, dependency occurs: the human brain ceases to function independently, and requires ebrainsupport systems to think. While on ebrainsupport, an individual can produce thought, make basic decisions, access memory stored on the system. Consider Ella here: her ebrainsupport remembers her name for her and can do many things for her. Unfortunately, those who reach brain death and require ebrainsupport lose a sense of who they really are - personality becomes redundant.

Etymology: From LIFE SUPPORT and electronic = electronic brain support system.
