My MacBook slipped off the edge of the bath where it was balancing while I was, er, sitting down next to it, and it fell into the empty bathtub. No real damage, but there's a bit of a scuff and a very small dent. And now I'm traumatised because my beautiful, perfect MacBook is no longer beautiful. (It just occurs to me: I have no idea what damage the bath itself suffered. I don't even care.) Why are we so obsessed with looks when it comes to our Apple products? I'm as guilty as anyone of needlessly upgrading. I currently have an iPhone 6+. I haven't upgraded to the 6S, partly because how much better could it possibly be, and partly because it physically looks the same. I'll try hard not to upgrade to the 7, but if Ives does his usual trick and somehow makes it better looking, I know I'll struggle not to persuade myself that actually 3D touch is an essential feature, and I really need those extra megapixels in the camera that I rarely use and whose photos I almost never look at. I was looking at my dog just now. He's got scuff marks, too. He's got very thin skin and when he takes a tumble, it leaves a scar. I'm not traumatised about that at all. I love him just as much. Is the genius of Apple that they turned a functional objection into a fashion item? Is there really any need to upgrade any of your Apple products more than about once every five years? I had the same TV for nearly nine years (until I buckled under needless, self-imposed pressure and bought a curved 1080p Samsung that I'm not sure is really all that much better than the 720p Sony I had).
