The apple of our I

“GERMAN philosopher Friedrich Nietzsc once grumbled, “Only sick music makes money today.” But in the 103 years since his death, the most beautiful music-playing moneyspinner to inspire the sin of envy is unquestionably the Apple IPod.

At a time when computer laptops are viewed by grave-faced airline security staff as possible bombs, Apple have breathed fun, possibility and beauty back into technology.

Anyone who wakes on Christmas morning, pushes their hand down into a stocking and clutches an IPod will break into the type of smile Adam and Eve might have brandished when eating their first pineapple.”

It was a apple, as if no one knew, but they were not smiling about it as they had just given up they’re lives, but of course it could have been any fruit, as the type had nothing to do with it.

I don’t need to read the full thing to realise that’s a bad article.
