An Ode to #HYPE

    theshinybeast , Apr 19, 2016 :
    OnePlus 3 or not OnePlus 3- that is the question:
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The speculation and renders of outrageous tech sites
    Or to take arms against this sea of speculators
    And by opposing end them. To die- to sleep-
    No more; and by a sleep to say we end
    The heartache, and the thousand complaints
    That the device is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wish'd. To die- to sleep.
    To sleep- perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub!
    For in that sleep of tech news what dreams may come
    When we have shuffled off this forum and indeed the internet
    Must give us pause. There's the battery amperage
    That makes calamity or not of battery life.
    For who would bear the chargers and battery packs of times gone by,
    Th' processor's power, the proud man's spec,
    The pangs of despis'd NFC, the devices display,
    The insolence of OxygenOS, and the spurns
    That patient merit of th' worthy users,
    When they themselves their quietus make
    With a bare 3 gb of RAM? Who would these dreams bear,
    To grunt and sweat under such a lack of HYPE
    Oh but the dread of no more hype from @Carl et al
    The undiscover'd features, from whose briliance
    No user returns- puzzles the will,
    And makes us rather bear those phones we have
    Than fly to others like Apple and Samsung that we know not of nor care for?
    Thus this lack of HYPE does not make cowards of us all,
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Isn’t sicklied o'er with the pale drought of news,
    And threads of great pith and moment will appear forum wide
    With this said let Oneplus not turn awry
    And lose the name of action.- Hype us now!
    The fair @Helen, @Carl @Pete - in thy offices in Shenzhen
    Be all your sins forgotten and forgiven.


    A special thanks to Bill (you know who you are;):p ) for all his esteemed help in writing this little ditty and of course my students, who were sweating and suffering doing an exam for me as I, bored out of my head, wrote this gibberish. :p

    Looks like you were productive writing your ditty during that exam time ;)

    Most of us would just doodle instead of ditty :neutral:
