Order In the Plex Now

Into Thin Air

Sunday, March 9th, 2008

How embarrassing for me. I’ve lost the review unit of the MacBook Air loaned to me by Apple. I had written my review (with a lead that was somewhat controversial) and was still, um, testing it. It came in handy when I needed to run some book scanning software that only worked on Windows XP–the computers in my office run only Windows 2000 (our main corporate system) or Vista (the other machine I have to test stuff). The Air ran XP nicely in Boot Camp. But then it was gone.

What happened to it? I posit the following theory in this Newsweek column: it was tossed out with the newspapers.
