Using the XO Laptop To Impress Your Friends

Ask yourself:

  • Who will be the first person in your gym to take an XO along instead of an iPod?
  • Who will be the first to say, “I don’t need an iPod, or a Skype phone, or a gPhone. The XO does it all.”
  • Who will be the first to buy an XO just to have it on the back seat of their Lexus, so their neighbors will know they “get it?”
  • Who will be the first to take an XO in their Starbucks and fire it up just to impress nearby folks (I have first dibs on the Mt. Kisco Starbucks. I also have Chappaqua in my sights.)
  • Who will be the first to communicate with Bill or Hillary using an XO? Chelsea?
  • Who will be the first to take an XO on the 7:14 from Chappaqua one day, and on a later time the next days, just to impress people?

Who will be the first to realize there are a myriad of opportunities to impress people that will come your way if

  • You have an XO, and
  • You are familar with the work of Stephen Potter, author of Gamesmanship and One-Upsmanship

Too late!

That would be me.

Aren’t you impressed?
