Walk With Me

It looks like the internet has labelled me as “anti-mac”, a couple of weeks ago I got this e-mail:

Well, Lauren, I’m a whore - so show me the money! Actually, Lauren did show me the money, but I decided it wasn’t worth it. Mitch Ferrence swag? Nah…

The entry in question actually got brief mentioning on a couple of Mac-links sites and even inspired a columnist over at PowerBookCentral.com to write a long piece about why Mac laptops should be more expensive than brand-named PC laptops. Go ahead and read “Why I Don’t Think Apple Should Cut iBook And PowerBook Prices”.

In other news; I’ve posted some pictures from China and Hong Kong and the Webcam is once again active after about two years of hiatus! Have a look at the interesting intersection outside my bedroom window.
