going apple

brandy framed by styrofoam from my new macbook pro's packaging. we've now officially gone apple.

(the mcintosh apple is named after the farmer john mcintosh, who, according to wikipedia, "discovered" it in 1811. the mackintosh raincoat, on the other hand, is named after charles macintosh, a scottish inventor - not after charles rennie mackintosh, the art nouveau architect and designer. isn't it strange how both the computer - macintosh - and the coat -mackintosh - end up with a spelling that is not quite like that of the person the name comes from?)
