Apple needs to stop making pretty things.

No. REALLY. They. must. stop.

First, there was this, which will not only put the internet in your pocket, but now includes notes and a full email client.

It wasn't worth it to me when it debuted, but it is now.

Dammit.

And now... Well, now there's THIS.

Someone get me a drool-bucket?

It's not that the Air is something I need, and I don't even particularly want it (*); it's just that the Air represents the future of mobile computing, in a way I don't think the pundits have quite grasped, and I see that whole big picture, and I'm so excited to dive in, even knowing how impractical it is for everyday folks leading everyday lives.

It is lust, my friends. Lust for the future to be here, now, and for it to be as clean and beautiful and full of goodwill as this kind of innovation promises.

Yes, I am a vocal promoter of low-end computers, the used machines, the cast-offs. No, I won't be jumping the "old computers are useful" ship any time soon.

But daaaaaamn, do I ever see the appeal of the high-end today.

*sigh*


*this is a blatant lie
