Son: what’s this, pops?
Father: you’ve been looking at the family moments, I see.
Son: yep – what’s this? Is it jewelry? It doesn’t seem to do anything…
Father: your grandpa gave that to me when I closed my first big sale! It’s an Apple Watch.
Father: they were a famous company back in the day! Made all sorts of stuff – cars, houses, airplanes…
Son: so how do I turn this “watch” on?
Father: you don’t, unfortunately. They had a very slow leak in the firmware garbage collector and when it finally wiped out the memspace, Apple had cancelled support for it
Son: but can’t you just hack it?
Father: Apple didn’t publish their firmware interfaces…
Son: what? Seriously? Isn’t that against the law?!?
Father: well it is *now*, but that was a different age…
Son: why don’t you sell it?
Father: it’s only worth a little bit. Now that the oceans catalyst mining is up and running, we’re practically swimming in gold.
Son: so Grandpa was a sucker?
Father: it was just a different age, son. Now go reboot your brother, it’s time for school.
