TECH TALK, by Fred Van Vactor
I was in Bi Mart the other day, looking to buy some new music on cassette tape when I noticed they had some of these little buggers on sale!
What IS it? I can hear you asking..
It's called a portable "USB drive"
takes, carries, or contains, digital information, "music" for example:
and stores it
like a container
Then you can take it from one computer
to another computer (for FREE)
Put information such as "music" on that computer (FOR FREE)
and give it to as many other computers
As you want to (FOR FREE)
This is cool
Since nobody buys cassette tapes or CD's any more (except me)
So it's no wonder that EVERYBODY wants one of these so called
portable "USB drives"
Nobody really knows what "USB" stands for,
so I will explain that:
"U.S.B." Stands for
United States Butthole
You slip the device into
the "butthole" of your laptop computer
and whatever "digital information" you want
is "pooped" safely and silently into this portable "USB drive"
NOBODY has to buy CD's anymore
(Except for ONE person to start the cycle)
Which is why there IS A significant lack of:
record stores or
shops like Bi Mart selling CD's or cassette tapes, or
Instead there soon will be "coaster shops"
Selling "repurposed" compact discs
for the growing coffee/tea mug industry
Which translates to musicians (former musicians)
Being repurposed to:
temp workers, janitors, bank tellers, clerks at Guitar Center, baristas, dishwashers, waitresses, pizza delivery, sign spinners, marijuana dispensary clerks, retailers at Grand Central Baking co. etc.
I hope this explains a lot for you. I tried to break it down simply so that you might understand.
