Pure desire?

I just read the press release
on Microsoft’s new “Vista Industrial Design Toolkit” and
really want to applaud Microsoft for this.  It’s really shameful
that with as many great hardware companies as there are building computers,
that Apple still kicks the crap out of all of them.  Are all the artistic
people working at Apple?  Yes, I know that the biggest problem is the
unwillingness to spend the R&D money it takes to build a truly innovative
case, however, Apple has shown that people are willing to pay for that. 
With this move, Microsoft is taking a stand that computers can and should start
being cool.  Still, when my computer starts being an “object of pure
desire” it’s time to step away….
