Apple Using his blue box, Steve Wozniak once called the Vatican (for free), and, imitating Henry Kissinger's voice, asked if he could speak with the pope. The pope turned out to be asleep. Wozniak pulled these pranks together with Steve Jobs, with whom he'd found Apple computer not long after. Oh, how the times have changed. How can a company with its roots in phreaking, pranks, and home-made computing end up the way it is today?

What's desirable

I work in a furniture shop, and I used to work in an electrical store.

People have always asked me questions like "Does this come in black?" or "Does this come in white?" or "Does this come in a baltic colour, because all my furniture is that colour". They've never asked "Does this come in an metallic-look?"

For god's sake, Apple. Make a wood-look Mac. Make a leather/vinyl Mac. Make a Mac that looks like a dog turd, just get away from the depressing grey!

Well, Microsoft already tried the dog turd look with their brown 1st generation Zune. Apparently it didn't work too well ;)
