The release of Apple’s new Airport Extreme Base Station has prompted a plethora of rave reviews.
Strangely, however, all the raves are not for the product itself, but for a review of the product.
Yes, the reviews are in and Glenn Fleishman’s review is as thrilling a review as you’ll read in the set that is reviews of the Aiport Extreme Base Station.
“This is the review of the Airport Extreme Base Station,” raved Gruber. “Thou shalt take no other reviews before this.
“Check out this bit: ‘Apple just needs to step up to the plate and add gigabit Ethernet to fulfill this speed demon’s full potential.’ Oh, snap! You got served, Apple!”
The pure awesomeness of the review has caused some confusion.
“When I read Fleishman’s awesome review, I thought, wow, this might just be better than sliced bread – better than 10 toasters full of sliced bread,” said Noah Eklestein, an AirPort Extreme Base Station buyer at a suburban Virginia Apple Store.
“But when I got it home and plugged it in, I was really disappointed. Eventually, I realized it was the review I was so excited about. Not the base station.”
The prolific Fleishman was predictably humble about the rave reviews for his review.
“It does seem that many people were interested in my review, for which I am very grateful,” Fleishman said. “It was a little weird when I noticed there were people standing outside of my house with their Airport Extreme Base Stations asking me to sign them. I didn’t make the Airport Extreme Base Station or anything. I just reviewed it. Albeit quite brilliantly.”
Fleishman has also been fielding requests from several Hollywood studios seeking the rights to make the review into a full-length feature movie.
“If such a deal can be constructed so that it’s amenable to both sides, I would be interested, but I will insist that I retain full creative control. I’d hate to see my review turned into some piece of crap buddy film with Owen Wilson and Bernie Mac.
“I’m thinking, oh, I don’t know, maybe Kevin Spacey could play me reviewing the Airport Extreme Base Station. If he’s available. If not, maybe Ed Harris. He’s good. I’d love to see Paul Giamatti play the Airport Extreme Base Station, but I’m somewhat flexible on actors.”
Fleishman said his one non-negotiable point is that it be directed by Christopher Nolan.
“I think only the taut suspense of, say, Memento could do justice to my review of the Airport Extreme Base Station.”
When asked to comment, Apple refused to stay on the subject of the review and kept trying to talk about some product called the Aiport Extreme Base Station.
