The Rebel Tablet
Aside from the actual football, our favorite show of last night was Motorola’s Apple-as-Big-Brother parable. Of course, giving flowers to pretty girls is bound to be a crowd-pleaser, but we had two other thoughts:
1) This might be the first time we’ve seen the wool tie put forward as a symbol of non-conformity. We’d prefer as less fast-fashiony version—a little less skinny, a little more tightly tied—but it’s still a sign of progress. When ties are outlawed, only outlaws will wear ties.
2) Those white hoodies looked a lot cooler than the tablet.
