A new ebook, Invaded by the iWatch, hit the Kindle Store late last month. As you can tell from the name, the book is a romantical adventure featuring the Apple Watch.
The 4,000 word short-short was published by an author writing under the pseudonym Leonard Delaney. It builds on his past success with first two tech-themed erotica e-books, Conquered by Clippy and Taken by the Tetris Blocks. (Yes, those really are the names, and if you like you can also get them in a paperback anthology.)
The plot, such as it is, focuses on a tech blogger and the erotic adventures which ensue after she receives an iWatch in the mail. The device is haunted by the ghost of Steve Jobs, who develops an interest in the blogger and, well,let’s let the ebook speak for itself:
She emitted an expression of sadness, then held her wrist up. Those fierce eyes appeared on the screen.“Oh billionaire ghost watch, you know what’s going on. You have the algorithms to detect how lonely I am. You’ve shown me so much today— how this techno-infused landscape is both a dream and a nightmare. You give away my every move, my every preference, my every feeling. All you want to do is invade my privacy.”
It gets considerably more NSFW after that. There’s even a scene involving a “Stevejob”, and later a “docking station of pleasure”, although the author doesn’t take the later scenes any more seriously than the scene quoted above.
Fusion.net contacted the author, a Canadian consultant, who summed up his writing style as “You kind of get more and more ridiculous with it.”
I can definitely see that.
Invaded by the iWatch costs $.99 in the Kindle Store.
