for kath, somewhere down the line



there's a clever new Apple/PC skit up on NYT.com. combine a skyscraper and banner ad?? whooda thunk?

and that's about all you want me to say because i am crumpy, granky and at odds with the world right now.

UPDATE -- the orig ad's down, but you can watch the Tubed version.

Somewhere over the rainbow is more like it. I really wish we had looked into macs before we bught new computers for the office.
I've already fund about half the funds I need for an iPod touch though...

the most exciting feature of the MacBook Air (IMO) is how Apple's begun to port the tactile UI of the Touch & iPhone over to the laptop. according to the keynote, the Air's trackpad allows pinch-zooms and photo rotations with a swivel of your fingers.

perhaps in our lifetimes we'll be able to throw stuff around on our monitors with swipes of a finger, as we do on our "smart" devices. (the Apple ones, that is.)
