For those of you who don't already know, the folks over at http://www.webosroundup.com/ are having a little contest.
Basically, make your own Palm Prē commercial.
I'll let you head over to the site for the rest of the details (and prizes).
And I came up with what I think is a good idea.
Problem is, it invoves a celebrity.
As I'm married to a foodie, I've seen my share of "Good Eats" episodes. The host, Alton Brown, is always talking about how your kitchen gadgets need to be capable of multiple tasks and have lots of applications.
As he puts it, the only uni-tasker in his kitchen is a fire extinguisher.
Now that all of the non-foodies are caught up.
We take AB here, and have him in his kitchen when he sudddenly needs to make a call, or look something up.
Point is he needs a phone.
Then Thing (a little hand who often hands him various items) pops out, and tries to give him an iPhone.
AB takes one look at it, says his line about uni-taskers, tosses it off screen and says while picking up a Pre, "No, /this/ is what I need."
And then have him highlight a few of the multi-tasking features of webOS.
Yes, it's still a rough idea.
No, I don't expect Mr. Brown to guest star in an ad for /me/.
And it's target audience is foodies.
But my wife loved it.
Last I checked, William Shatner uses a Pre.
Palm should get him to endorse it.
