We have lived in “exponential times” since the big bang (if there was one)

The Vaio is Dead! Long Live the iMac!

It’s a big day here in relationary land.  My trusty Sony Vaio had a physical hard disk failure.  Repair would cost one quarter of the purchase price and weeks between Sony and back.  Fortunately, I do most of my work on Google Docs at home and I backup my iTunes library.  So I went to the local high profile electronics dealer and asked the sales rep what I could get for the original purchase price of a four year old Sony Viao.  The answer was a top of the line iMac and in a matter of 20 minutes for financing I walked out with a big box in hand.

When I reached my apartment and pulled the iMac Box out of the brown cardboard shipping box I looked at the thing and decided to clean my entire apartment in preparation.  This was like bringing my dream date home.  I unpacked the computer and set it up on my desk.  I realized that I would have to get a new chair so I would not hurt my neck looking up into the screen which was bigger than my television display.  Then I turned it on.

Everything about the machine, the OS and the software is superior.  This is American design, Californian design at its finest.  I showed it to my friend and he told me to take time to get a little sleep every night.

I celebrated by downloading a complete Mozart collection from iTunes.  The sound is great.  I’ll be giving away my Vaio, my DVD player and my television set.  I think I will give up my land line and buy an iPhone, too.

iMac, where have you been all my life?
