Ok, I recently joined (but switched my computing to Mac over 2 yrs ago), so maybe this has come up before, but I was wondering... Does anyone else out there see a connection? Eve tempts Adam with an apple. I go to the Grove, and the Apple store tempts me with an Apple? I can't ignore it. I can't escape it. I don't even want to avoid it. I... must... go... in..., must... spend... money..., must... bite... the... Apple... It all starts so innocently too. Just one cute little iPod 4 years ago, what's the harm in that? So it had to connect to my PC, which had its own negative ideas about interacting with a non-Bill Gates product; the cute little iPod still managed to do it, and win my heart, to boot. Then, when the frustration of computing / technical difficulties becomes too great, who's your little buddy? The iPod. Who's gotta go? The PC. Enter the cute little iBook. It's gotta be the cute little iBook, to match the cute little iPod. PC, say hello to your new friend eBay. (Sold, good riddance.) But then, you want a nest for your little friends, so when your room mate moves out, you're happy to help with the packing. All the while, you've got paint swatches in your head, and you're asking yourself if it's easier to take the cute little iPod to the hardware store to have them color-match that way. Now that spare room is awfully empty. It needs filling up, not for you, but for your little buddies! How about a nice tanker desk? Powder-coated iPod white!? Yes! And a chair!! Oooh, but do the chair in perferated leatherette, with brushed metal arms and legs... Yes! Yes!! Lil' Stinker & Tighty-Whitey will be so happy!! Oh, if only it would stop there, but no! There are coats, hats, and mittens (in winter) that are iPod white! And sunglasses! They have sunglasses in iPod white too! Hairdressers for platinum blond iPod-ness are abundant! It's all so tempting! Then Apple comes up with the iPhoto! There's no chance of escaping, but you're fine with that, and the 60MB it comes with. I recently received an Apple gift card... like I needed another excuse to go to the Grove's Apple store... and so, like a kid in a candy store (or an freak for a fix), I spent my gift card. And I got a second Express! Not that I needed it. But it's not my fault! The mere idea of streaming music to the living room stereo while the first Express is streaming my dsl and printing stuff in the (now) iPod office was just too tempting! I couldn't help myself! I'm going to have to put my foot down and draw the line at iPod white shoes. I do have my limits, you know. (God, I hope Marc Jacobs isn't getting any Apple-ideas.) So, just what kind of Apple did Eve tempt Adam with, anyway?
