I Want This, Even Though I Hate Myself For Wanting It

I'm so tense -- the respirator is about to be removed -- that I've just been sorting piles in the garage and refreshing the page for the San Francisco Chronicle's live blogging from Macworld. How pathetic is that? Worse still, despite the looming crisis of Nachträglichkeit and the fact that I'm pretty sure Steve Jobs is not a pleasant person to be around, I'm captivated by his performance, even when it's relayed secondhand. The fact that he can get the heads of Google and Yahoo on stage together to celebrate his latest product is kind of gross, further confirmation that Apple has become about as alternative as, well, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and nevertheless fuel for the fires of desire. I do want a phone that does everything. I do. I do.
