"They want it all," Santa complained recently. "Docking stations, outfits (cases, sleeves, skins, and folios), wireless keyboards, games and apps. You name it, they want it."
An exhausted Mr. Claus went on to say that the iPads were bold enough to actually email him a NYDailyNews.com article, "iPad owners: Don't forget to add these accessories to your holiday list," giving the details about all the above accessories they feel they need. Santa was appalled, commenting, "Imagine, the nerve of those pushy iPads."
"Okay, they've been nice -- and not naughty," Santa admits, adding, "but puh-lease, gimme a break. I can only produce so much."
The elves at the North Pole are working overtime to try to meet the demands, but even THEY are getting disgusted. One elf remarked, "All they deserve is a big piece of coal in their stockings. Don't those greedy iPads know that this is supposed to be the season of giving, not getting?"
Either the iPads don't know that; or they know it, but just dismiss it. For themselves, they want nothing but the best. They're following the advice of the late Stanley Marcus, the Dallas retailer, who once declared, "I have the simplest taste; I am always satisfied with the best."
