Now Apple, Inc wants a piece of the apple pie, and enters the gaming market with its gaming console called Shoe.

To this day, enthusiasts have been sitting in front of the TV when playing games. The only physical action they got to see was those of their thumbs working the controller. Nintendo was about to change that with it’s Wii console by engaging the players to move a little more. From thumbs we then went to wrists and arms. That, still, was not enough for Apple. What results is The Shoe.

The Shoe console is simple but brilliant. Debuting alongside it is only one game, called Runnin’. The goal of this game is to get off your lazy butt as much as you can, and run around wherever for a predetermined amount of time. The graphics are as close to real-life as you can get, and the rumble pack makes the pavement or gravel easily distinguishable when on the move. The added effects of being able to feel the light breeze or smell the BBQ of a park you may play Shoe in makes it irresistable.

But perhaps the most irresistable aspect of this console is its price. At $ 29, you too can be up and Runnin’ in no time.

P.S.: I would like to thank SlashNOT and the visitors that have honored me with the title of Contributor of the Year 2005. I did not find out about this until today. My stories were absent for a few months due to life, but now I’m back, and will try to provide you with laughs and giggles the best I can.

Yours Truly,


  1. Ummm…What are you talking about? Games are often made to escape reality to play in a fantasy world of endless possibilities that you would not normally be able to do in real life. BTW why is it referring to Apple? Good imagination, but i don’t like it.

  2. Here’s an idea: Click the link in the story. Then you’ll know what he’s talking about, and you’ll find the story funny. It’s a fun and easy thing you can do before you leave a comment on any website!
