I work at a place where your level of cool is directly proportional to the level of Apple products owned. There is some debate about the residual cool of say, owning 4 different models of ipod. I tend to de-crap immediatly while my cast offs are still useful to others. In fact my ipod touch was engraved “Stolen From: Kevin”. I believe the guy that bought it found this too be at least a $20 value add.
I’ve had an explosion of apple at my house in 2008. As you can see from my not-to-scale graph above, I’m getting pretty damn cool. The quality and sophistication of my charts, graphs and other technical illustrations was been called ‘questionable’… So I chose tools fitting my level of expertise for this task.
