Bought a new lamp which was delivered yesterday - sans bulb. Quick visit to a couple of stores and no - the wrong wattage .. a second night with no light.

Reminded of Jobs on the iPod - delivered with a full battery so immediately useful.

Fast forward to iPhones with everything you need to get you going immediately including contacts, browser and calendar.

… at least until the legislators have their way and you get your lump of glass for 100s - if not 1000s of dollars and it is useless until you spend the next ‘n’ days working out what apps you need.

Let’s keep going backwards …
