I do, but the timing of Black Friday / Cyber Monday tends to suck every year -> I get (like many people on salary) paid monthly, and at the end of the month (last day). Some places it's the first of the month, other places it's the second week of the month, etc. Anyway, these *deals* will expire two days before I'd have the cash to really take advantage of them, leaving me to either wait until after Christmas / New Years, or try to get something during a panic sale right before Christmas Eve.

Right, I think I've decided I'm going to start wearing a portable Faraday cage to work, if only because the wireless charging stations and wireless internet devices seem to be having an observable effect on people (contrary to engineering claims, and the science I haven't actually double-checked in person). It's cooking their brains...

There's nothing wrong with them.

It's simple. The people who work @ Apple are sadists, who get paid to design computers that are progressively more deficient as time goes on, while increasing prices and convincing customers that they are making the right choice.

The customers of Apple products are masochists, who purchase increasingly more expensive and deficient devices as time goes on, while being convinced by people from Apple that they are making the right choice.

The Apple Store is their version of a dungeon, and while latex / leather / gimp masks are unnecessary, color options are not.
