How to introduce your newborn baby to the world (Apple fanboy tutorial)


When you've got something that’s been developing for a whopping 9 months, a product that is ‘mini’, but oh so flawless, you want to introduce it in the best possible way. To former Apple employee Andreas Kleinke this meant something very personal - his own newly-born son, Jonathan Henry.

So how do you go on with such a daunting task? Kleinke must have thought that ‘hey, the boy is a “mini”, so why not replicate the iPad mini announcement page’ describing the design, ‘features’ and ‘specs’ of the baby? Kleinke admits that the initial idea got “a bit out of hand”, but the end result turned out truly brilliant.

The proud father created a whole page styled in a way similar to the iPad mini homepage, putting pictures of the baby in an iPad mini frames and describing all its aspects, including the operating system that he says is “non-Android (thank God)”.

The baby has also got a “a 20-inch seamless unibody enclosure,” “ten meticulously aligned fingers” that grant him the “perfect multi-touch experience,” plus a powerful loudspeaker with “maximum volume going all the way up to 120 dB.” Ah, and the carriers in the form of mom and dad get “Parental sleep mode disabled by default.” Check out the whole page at the link below. Genius, isn't it?

I don't see why you would take something so heart-warming and make it so negative adding the word fanboy. What's with all the iHate lately?

iPhone 6 anticipation is a force to be wrecking with, it is a bit of a threat given that it's going to offer a bigger screen - one biggest arguments against an iPhone, and even with the lack of a bigger screen option iPhone 5s outsold everything... It's human nature to fear what you dont understand...

Wrecking? Don't you mean reckoned? And it's one of the biggest arguments... Please try to understand English grammar before you diss other people.

Because it IS a fanboy? He is the one comparing his baby to an Apple device, even showing his dislike for Android, all for his cute new born baby. I think it's funny what he has done. But I do think when you compare your baby to an Apple product and showing your love/hate for an OS/Brand using your baby, it's at least a little weird.

Oh for heaven's sake, lighten up. He is NOT comparing his son to an Apple device. If I understand it correctly, the guy used to work for the company and wanted to tell his colleagues about the happy news. I am sure he is well aware his kid is a human being. :) As a matter of fact, I think he's actually putting a bit of satire in there, using all the generic Apple marketing lingo like "meticulously aligned" and "stunning" and "blow you away". And about the "Android" thing: it's Greek for "human-like". Guess the dad's just happy that his son is an ACTUAL human. :) Sure, it's also a jab directed at Google, but if anything it's in good spirits, not "weird".

In that light (he used to work for the company), that makes it funnier indeed. As to the other meaning of Android, I really didn't think of that and agreed, that makes it a lot more funnier (and smarter) too.

It's Victor H.. Of course he's going to hate on apple cause the more arguments between Apple and android users in the comments section the more popular his un-interesting articles become..

"....plus a powerful loudspeaker" If you ever had a baby of your own this is funny... I did something similar when I got my project car (a cheap old Porsche, for those who're curious), compared that to adopting a dog scenario when I texted everyone.
