An event this afternoon made me realise that I have truly embraced the Mac ownership experience. I realised that I had run out of USB ports on the back of the Mac Mini, so I went an unearthed a USB2.0 hub that I had previously used with my old PC. I hooked it up, and arranged it nicely on the desk, and it was then that I realised something was gravely wrong…
The hub was made of black plastic. Everything else on the desk (even the lamp and phone) was shiny and silver. IT DIDN’T MATCH!
So the hub has been relegated to a position underneath the desk where it is less aesthetically offensive. Still works just the same, but doesn’t upset the gadget feng shui.
Here endeth the lesson.
