*sitting at keyboard, shivering, sweating, whimpering, drooling with
unabashed gizmo-lust, trying to decide whether to gnaw off my hands so I
can't write away and sell my soul for a Frozen Newton, or just pick a fight
with the nearest thugs and have them beat me senseless until this fever

And I thought my Newt is beautiful -- I think I may be in love!  I don't see
the original multi-coloured Apple logo though, so perhaps if I focus on that
tiny flaw I can ignore the overall drop-dead gorgeousness of these clear
2100s, long enough to suppress the urge to sell my soul ...

James, what have you done to me?
