The Touch Book

I've decided I want the Touch Book.

I've wanted a netbook for a while. My Mac is awesome because of all the user-friendly software products (you know, like i[insertnounhere]). But now that Google owns my heart, I do everything with online apps (you know, like Google [insertdescriptivewordthatiseasytolocalizehere]).

I'm not saying I want to replace my computer for no reason with one that can only handle a subset of its current capabilities. My Mac is 4 years old, and I want to replace it because as I type this, the letters appearing on the screen aren't keeping up with my fingers. You know your computer's a goner when it can't quite rival the wordprocessing skills of your old 386.

Anyway, I've decided on this one for several reasons.
  1. I like things that serve multiple functions. A food processor that also works as a juicer. A phone that also works as a PDA. A $400 computer that also works as a pen and paper.
  2. Computers get old and useless really fast, so it's best to pick one that isn't even on the market yet. That way you know it'll be cutting edge for at least a week.
  3. It's shiny and pretty.
On a side note, I've decided to add the word "book" to the end of a bunch of words and trademark them. It's all about advance planning.
