My Boots Are Shinier Than Yours

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

I was recently showing off a new new purchase to a friend who also works at a (different) MegaCorp. My new little gizmo-tronic toy was a 1 Terabyte NAS workstation for, er, well, for backups. Yep, that's why I got it.

Anyway, he apparently went running out and bought the 2 Terabyte version. Probably for backups as well. Whatever.

My point is, and I do have one, I think I have discovered The Shiny Boot Race.

The bad news for tech companies is that this desire to one-up first-adopter friends means you have to be a second adopter. Or a 1.5 adopter.

Anyway, he has a nice shiny new Motorola Q and I just read that they're coming out with a Q Professional. So double doo doo on him - my phone will be a slimming shade of black AND labeled Pro.
