I had a dream last night (or maybe it was yesterday morning). I was using my Compaq M300 laptop, and the machine downloaded a hardware patch of some sort, and then installed it without permission from me. This patch installed a four-inch “side-car” to my laptop, extending the screen to the right, making the screen touch-sensitive, and adding a numeric keypad next to the keyboard.
It also came with a coupon allowing me to trade in my M300 for something that looked suspiciously like an iBook, and that had a touch-sensitive screen and all sorts of other coolness.
Naturally, I decided to forego the trade-in and uninstall the “patch” because it was preventing my computer from fitting into its bag.
And then I woke up.
And I’ve been awake pretty much ever since. Stupid insomnia.
