A little more than a week ago, Rahul Sood blogged a picture that showed him cutting his birthday cake with a $1,800 MacBook Air laptop.
It’s so damn sharp, he wrote underneath, it did a fine job.
For Apple fans this was blasphemy, something like drinking Kool-Aid from the Holy Grail, and they swiftly voiced their displeasure on the web. Sood is the chief technology officer of Hewlett-Packard’s
PC gaming group after all, so his cake-cutting stunt was clearly not a testament to Apple’s
design prowess. While Sood claimed that a merry mix of wine, friends and a good cigar had pushed him to it, his closing statement on the offending blog entry suggested a deeper motive:
Ahh well, I wouldn’t be needing this notebook for long anyways … : ) Stay tuned for more …
