As I was walking along the Great Western Road I spotted and called into the Glasgow Apple Shop and had a wee peek at the new MacBook. I'd quite forgotten that I had my Nikon dangling from the neck when the salesman came up to me and asked, "Do you have your USB cable with you?" After a quick double take I realised that he wanted me to download my pictures onto the MacBook and perhaps be inspired to buy one of these desirable machines there and then.
I responded: "It's not a digital, it's a film camera."
You could have knocked him down with a feather.
"Eh, you mean, like it's using emulsion? It looks just like a D1." As if I'm from the stone ages, or at least 2004.
"D1," I countered. "That's been replaced by the D2, and the D2x, and this week, by the D2xs."
"Oh, I didn't know about that." He was so 2005.
I didn't buy the MacBook and ended up here instead where I read my pre-digital newspaper.
