A real man has to have his new toy once in a while. I bought this little baby at Compuway on Friday .
There was no particular reason why I bought this particular model. It was what the Foochow guy at the shop introduced me to. Our conversation went like this:
Me: I want wireless internet router.
Guy: This one.
Me: How much?
There wasn't any selling effort on behalf of the guy, and I also didn't know what to ask. It's a bit worrying to think that I might have been their dream customer. In other words, a sucker.
So when I reached the counter, I asked the Foochow lady for a discount. She gave me RM20 off. Knowing that I was surrounded by Foochows in the shop, I knew that was as good as it was ever going to get. So I said okay, and went home with my new toy.
You'd think since I took this picture, I'd be scrutinising thru every tiny detail specs on the box.
In actual fact, I was only looking out for just one thing. Yeah baby! Easy Install Wizard almighty.
This is how the whole setup looks like.Looks pretty easy. No sweat man.
Phone line, left. Ethernet line to PC, middle. Power, right. Sap sap sooi.
Clever product design. The phallic antenna appeals to the male ego. It is also a reminder & symbolic representation of all things male - remote control hobby, transformers, etc.
Hoolamak! Can bend some more! Extra 20 points! Makes you feel like a man!
Men will never look at roads maps, even when they're lost.
