I still can’t wrap my head around these new iMacs. All these colors and an attempt to make the design more accessible... then poof: external power brick (first time ever on an iMac) and literally no I/O.
What strikes me as bad here is that there’s no marketing material that shows the power brick, and I’m pretty sure a non-trivial number of people will be surprised when they’ll open the box.
So yeah, I was listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness... and that somehow reminded me of @nd.😮

Oh no it’s Sunday... it means... it means tomorrow... woooooooork
The other day my mother - highly educated and relatively active woman at her age - turned on her Windows PC after few days of inactivity and boom: she got slammed with a pseudo-OOBE flow triggered by a new update.

An arrogant bastard
