Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

There are lots of people though that actually appreciate refined design. They buy nice things - nice furniture, nice cars, nice houses, nice art, nice wine, etc. They appreciate such things beyond how it makes them look to others - because they really don't care what other people think, they have money, like to spend it in ways that make them happy, and can easily afford it. They are called "rich" and they are the target of a great deal of commerce in market economies...



Completely wrong. According to Bankrate.com, 86 percent of people who spend cash on luxuries like expensive cars, jewelry, and electronics are non-millionaires trying to act the part by purchasing luxury brands.

Studies (eg The Millionaire Next Door) have shown that the really rich tend to have a much more modest lifestyle than they can afford. They wear chain store clothes, eat simple foods, buy mid range cars (often second hand) and live in modest houses. They don't buy designer clothes or accessories, drink expensive wines or travel first class. These people are often business owners or successful investors.
