It's odd; on paper I don't even like capitalism that much, or believe in The American Way, or think that gadgets -- or any possession -- can make us happy. I'm not the kind of guy who normally watches corporate presentations, let alone watches them through tears. And yet when Steve Jobs introduced the clamshell iBook back in 1999, I found myself actually weeping with gratitude.

Years ago when Carrie was writing her column through the night in her tiny New York apartment overflowing with shoes she couldn't possible have bought on her salary, I got a bit excited about the laptop she was using. Apple had released a handbag-shaped 'Clamshell' iBook G3 and Carrie had one. Graeme tracked one down for me. It no longer works but I can never throw it out. Irrational? Absolutely.
