I didn't know you'd joined the moral minority, Eugen. I thought those
machines were just for the moccacino set.

They always look sexy on the movies (you know, those nifty silver
laptops with a luminescent logo), but I've never known anyone to use
one in real life. How's the apple experience?


btw, I just found Apple on www.lovemarks.com. Here's an excerpt from

"The Future of Brands

Brands have run out of juice. More and more people in the world have
grown to expect great performance from products, services and
experiences. And most often, we get it. Cars start first time, the
fries are always crisp, dishes shine.

Five years ago Saatchi & Saatchi looked closely at the question: What
makes some brands inspirational, while others struggle?

And we came up with the answer: Lovemarks. A future beyond brands."

This is the really evil marketing stuff, people. Have a look at the
site, but remember that *only sentients can love you*. Brands never
love you back!

Anyway, Apple is a featured brand, go here:
