Holy $#@& !

Tuesday, June 05, 2007 | 10:45 AM

Mrs. BP isn't the technophile her husband is: She barely carries a cell phone (but does so at my insistence), rarely gets impressed with new gadgets, couldn't care any less if we get the big plasma screen.

So you can imagine my surprise when,  last night, as we watched the new Apple iPhone commercial (below) on TV, she let out an involuntary Holy Shit!

The commercial reminded me of that great quote by Arthur C. Clarke: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

The new iPhone looks like magic . . .


All of the iPhone ads are here


Wired reminds us that 30 years ago on this day (1977), the Apple II -- the world's first "practical" personal computer, went on sale.
