    Default 'The Pyramid' Mocks Tablet Lovers Last Night on The Office


    If you thought the iPad was impressive, perhaps you would be blown away by the new Dunder Mifflin-Sabre tablet dubbed "The Pyramid." The newest tablet on the block is large but not more than three pounds - assuming, of course, you take a pass on the battery and optional “memory booster.”

    Unfortunately for those of you who were legitimately excited by the above description (and if you were, please seek help) the Pyramid is a work of fiction introduced to viewers last night on a hilarious new episode of The Office. On the show, character Dwight Schrute shows off the awkward-shaped tablet to what at first appears to be a brood of unconvinced onlookers.

    "Why is it shaped like that?" Phyllis inquires. "So you can tell your client: 'Unleash the power of the Pyramid,'" Dwight replies.

    But before the brief presentation had concluded, at least one member of the audience was ready to give the Pyramid a try - a subtle jab at the overzealous early adopters of any device that fits in the tablet category no matter how ridiculous or inadequate the product proves to be.

    In case you missed the episode, check out the brief clip below and behold the mighty Pyramid

    When I watched this last night, I laughed out loud pretty hard. There were some subtle things that made it all the more enjoyable to watch - including the memory specifications and the weight of the device with its addons, as well as the sound the device made when powering off (it reminded me of the old computers back from the early '90s).

    I actually like the new version. The original is still my favorite, but I don't think I can say it's way better than this season. Then again, Kevin has always been my favorite character so my views are going to be different than most.

    The office always brings in a couple laughs. It's been a long time since I watch it.
