in the absence of having anything else more interesting to say, i’ll just mention that apple released their new entry-level notebooks today.
except for the black one. you basically pay $150 just to get a black one, instead of the standard white. that’s quite a style premium.
henry ford, who would give you a model t in any color as long as it was black, must be spinning in his grave about now.
it’s a style premium that i’m sure a lot of people will be paying, though. apple is going to sell these new macbooks, black and white alike, by the truckload, or bushel, or whatever measure you prefer.
