When I was younger and iPods were still relatively new, it was fashionable to exchange iPods with someone else on the street to see the music they had. There was a small group of owners and because of that there was a certain amount of trust in exchanging iPods. If you were seen with one, it was a sign of your coolness and eclectic tastes in alternative music.

Today, as I am quickly discovering, a similar thing is happening with macbooks. In the past two days I’ve been approached to keep an eye on someone’s macbook while they went somewhere. People who have these small, beautiful pieces of technology know their values and their power. You don’t want to ask just anyone to look out for it because for all you know they might run away with it. Only owers can be trusted with these marvels. Apple truely has created a clan of loyal users.
