As a huge geek, I can’t help but be smitten by geeky proposal stories. So here are my top three favorite geeky proposals:
3. Dashboard Widget Proposal
Earlier this year, a Mac geek created a Dashboard Widget (which, according to Apple, are “mini-applications that let you perform common tasks and provide you with fast access to information”) to propose to his girlfriend. When she was using his computer, he told her to hit F12 and an image of a ring popped out with the words “Will you marry me?”
Needless to say, she said yes, and all (Mac) geeks reveled in delight. You can get more details on this proposal here.
2. The Joy of Tech! Proposal
The Joy of Tech! is one of my favorite comic strips, concentrating on geeky, techie, pro-Apple subjects. Here is their idea of a proposal….and I love it! I really would’ve been swept off my feet if any guy had done this.
1. The Apple Store Proposal
Last summer, Apple opened its famous Fifth Ave store in Manhattan (can you tell I’m a huge Mac head? ). In celebration of the grand opening, Apple set a website with time lapse photos in front of the store. This man took three signs with him to the location at 5:30am and proceeded to propose to his girlfriend on camera:
Here is the direct link to the video on the Apple website – the proposal shows up about 2/3 of the way into the video.
