    BTW, the MacBook Air doesn't come with a friggin' USB cable? We have a zillion "old" iPhone charging cables and none of them will work because the MacBook air wants a plain old USB cable!! Aaagh...

    Going off on a real tangent here, but I feel like the urban/suburban living experiences are going through a period where they becoming more different. Suburbia and smaller towns seem to be serviced by so many of the same chain stores, whether it's chain restaurants or chain markets/malls, etc. Granted, national chains provide more diversity and quality now than they probably ever have, but in their pervasiveness they are homogenizing everything. And they're all owned by the same few huge corporations.

    If you live in a large city or one of the cooler smaller cities, you pretty much never have to bother with these places if you don't want to. And you can still have experiences like trawling numerous local used record/CD stores for goodies and pretend like it's the pre-internet era.

    What "old iPhone charging cable" that isn't USB? USB is all I've ever seen for iPhone charging cables. BTW, they're $3 at the drugstore -- you don't need the $19 Apple ones.
