Politics, Technology, and Language

If thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought — George Orwell

Can you really say “vulva” in a newspaper?

 I have right here in my hot little hands that actually aren’t all that little and are only slightly warm at the moment a brand new lick-ready smooth-as-love Apple MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo Super Orgasm Deluxe Ultrahard Modern Computing Device Designed by God Herself Somewhere in the Deep Moist Vulva of Cupertino Yes Yes Don’t Stop Oh My God Yes.

 Does that sound like idiotic gushing? Like undue praise for what amounts to just another dumb computer that has its share of flaws and glitches and armies of sneering übergeek detractors on Slashdot? Once again, I do not really care. Because like it or not, Apple has actually managed something quite radical for a tech company: They have not merely changed the world, they have actually improved it. Oh yes they have.
— the SF Gate’s Mark Morford sings Apple’s praises, apparently with the entire 16th Street Baptist Choir behind him, in When Apple Rules The World

Damn, that’s some fine writing.

Oh, and my shiny MacBook 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo arrives from China on Tuesday, not that I’ve been tracking it or anything.
