I had lunch today with Marc Canter, we talked about a lot of things. I admire Marc’s passion and intelligence and good vibe, and I even like his anger. He and I both got screwed hard by Apple, but I use Macs and had an iPod in my pocket at lunch today. Marc won’t spend a dime on their products.

I gave up that battle a few years ago, when my readers gave me an iPod as a get-well present. What the fuck. You think Steve Jobs notices the money I give him? Would he miss it if I didn’t spend it? No of course not, to both questions.
