Why settle for just one color? Something like 100 iBooks in the 
building, so I had to take drastic measures ;)


I think almost everyone I know has gotten either an iBook or an iPod in 
the last few months, and that's not much of a stretch either. The mini 
(1/5 the size of my Shuttle PC, and about 60dB quieter) probably has a 
million pre-orders by now, I need 2 for the parental units.

Apple is probably the only company in the USA left that still "gets it". 
Companies like Dell are so busy screwing over their customers to make 
$10 a unit, and directing them to tech support in India for customer 
disservice. Add 20 years of Windows blue screens, virii, and it's 
general ability to spontainiously delete term papers, and you get a 
worldwide mentality of "anything but more Wintel".

What if we don't FoRK our customers at every opportunity? Yea, that's 
thinking different. Go Apple.
