I can help you have some fun,
Sometimes I get stronger from the sun.

If you never give me a break,
You will find I may never again wake.

I am optimistic on one side,
I can be short, fat, tall, or wide.

Rectangle, cylinder are just a couple of my shapes,
And maybe I can even help you make some videotapes.

Sometimes you have to wait long for me to get ready,
Just hold on for a few hours and be steady.

I can help you get around to the market or mall,
and even help you make a call.

What am I?




What Next?

Number four should say "Rectangular prism" instead of just "Rectangle."

Nice teaser. I didn't get it correct. Wasn't even on the right track. Thanks for posting.

Great quiz I didn't get it either. I thought it was something like a blackberry/phone/camera, all-in-one type thing.

I guessed battery right away, but figured that was too easy. After the 2nd time reading it I was sure. Very nice.

I was on that track, but I had only got as far as electricity before I got impatient and hit the answer button.

Ditto, Madelulabelle. That answer button is just too easy to push sometimes!

I thought it was a satellite. The first clue pushed me in that direction, and the rest of the clues can be applied. Solar recharging batteries are still very uncommon.

1. satellite tv, all satellites are solar powered
2. satellites do die in orbit and are left stranded after operating continuously
3. I took this to mean the side facing the earth, where they serve a purpose. Or in some cases, as in the Hubble telescope, optimistic when looking outward into space searching for new discoveries.
4. Satellites are all different shapes, and communication satellites can transmit video (kind of a stretch for the satellite)
5. It takes a while to build and launch a satellite. Once it's in orbit, sometimes it takes a while for a non-geosynchronous satellite to move into the right position.
6. GPS and sat phones.

Really, a lot of these clues could apply to lots of things (help you get around, need power, various shapes). Still fun!
