late night


So last night was fun. Stayed at work with Micah until midnight working on the Children's Museum of Manhattan project. Or shoud I say, progressed a little further while spending more than half the time just talking. I don't know how, but I actually do get some amazing things accomplished here. I think more working environments should be like this - however this week has been exhausting. I've gotten an extra project dumped on me that needs to be done by Saturday night, so I'm pretty sure Micah and I will be spending most of the day Saturday here.

In other news, as some may know, I'm in the market for a new computer, but I've been holding out until Apple can come up with something more aesthetically pleasing than the current line of MacBook Pros (or, the McBook with Fries, as opposed to the plain McBook). The grey plastic border and spray-painted keys just don't do it for me, Steve. And the wide screen bezel makes it look like a toy compared to the thinner, more squarish titanium. Dell agrees with me. Look at their Inspiron series - white metal border, black keys. So there, Steve, I just told you there's a Dell computer that looks sexier than yours (inspired by your own design no less) - what're you going to do now?

File a patent for a new case design, apparently.



For the win (from macrumors.com):

In the application, Apple acknowledges that while "current enclosure designs work well, in many instances it would be desirable to provide enclosures that are thinner, lighter, stronger and aesthetically more pleasing than current enclosure designs."
