Mr Jobs and his chums at Apple are always introducing the New Thing, the Lastest Innovation and this week it was Apple TV...

...and the iPhone.

Apple are the ultimate marketeers of our age. We all want the latest Apple gadget long before we've thought whether or not we really, truly need it!

Actually "want" isn't a strong enough word; "desire" or even "lust for" would be nearer the truth.

It's a bit like the Queen-turned-Witch in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs...

Witch: All alone, my pet?

Snow White: Why... why, yes, I am, but...

Witch: [Sniffing] Mm-hmm. Baking pies?

Snow White: Yes, gooseberry pie.

Witch: It's apple pies that make the menfolks' mouths water. Pies made from apples like these.

Snow White: Oh, they do look delicious.

Witch: Yes, but wait 'till you taste one, dearie. Like to try one? Go on. Go on, have a bite.
Yes, just one bite and you're a goner!

Anyway, talking of Miss White, I've got an apple product that Apple haven't come up with yet --- The Apple Watch!

And, look! The apple goes round!

I have to admit, this Apple thing has passed me by. I don't think I have any product with the Apple logo on it apart from Braeburns which are very nice this time of year.Let's be honest here. The items you describe are a range of luxury goods that we have to be told we need.Who would bother otherwise ?
