The Apple fanboys will be frothing at the mouth today. As I type this, Mr. Jobs is picking up his legendary dry cleaning as he gets ready for the big show today. What could it be? More new iPods? More new iPod colors? Macbook Pro “Ultra” (or something)? Apple knows how to generate buzz. And the sound of Apple-related blog chatter is absolutely deafening.
But if you’re looking for the big announcement today, it’s not happening at Macworld Expo. It’s happening right here.
I bought a Macbook Pro.
Yes, the man who doesn’t hate Macs, but just hates Mac users, bought a Mac. It took quite a bit of energy to conjur up enough self-loathing to purchase one, but I finally did.
So have at it people. The target doesn’t get much bigger than this. I finally gave in to all smoothly transitioning shininess; all those drop shadows and rounded corners; all that…brushed metal!
I’ll blog again some time soon to explain why I finally caved in. For now, all I ask is that I not be likened to that smarmy pseudo-hipster from the Mac ads. That’s not me. Really. I swear.
