image for NYC Fashion Week Extended, Will Include Show for Kindles and iPads
You've come a long way, baby!

For once, the two gadgets see eye-to-eye. Ida iPad (the head of the Apple iPad labor union) and Katie Kindle (the head of the Amazon Kindle labor union) totally agree. There's a fantastic, but neglected, market out there to deal with the latest fashions for their members.

At a joint press conference held in Grand Central Station, Ida and Katie told an enthralled throng of commuters the news about the Fashion Week extension when they and some of their union members will serve as models on the runway. The audience was totally mesmerized, never before having seen a press conference run by gadgets. "Who cares if I make it home to Westchester to go to the movies tonight?" asked one startled young woman. "The show is here, right here."

"Don't let your old iPads look their age," Ida iPad told the crowd. "Spruce them up. Go to Fashion Week and find out how. Plan for their makeovers."

Katie Kindle nodded her head in agreement. "Exactly. Find out about the latest lines in skintight skins and trendy new outer wear offered by famous designers." She did a little pirouette before an admiring crowd. "I'm wearing a leopard skin covered with a basic black leather coat, both designed by Armani." She fingered her delicate gold necklace encrusted with diamonds and announced, "Jewelry by Harry Winston."

The press conference went on for another thirty minutes (and an hour of autographs), but one irritated commuter was not amused. He pushed his way through the crowd and headed for the train, as he complained to his friend, "It's bad enough we have to go through this whole fashion thing with our wives. Now our Kindles and iPads want new clothes too? Ridiculous! I'm outta here."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
