Apple is a better Sony than Sony

For whatever reason, the neuron cluster in my brain where I storemy mental perception of Apple isalso used to store my mental perception of Sony. When I see commercials for Appleproducts, I regularly either verbally say that it’s a Sony (such as”That’s the new tiny Sony mp3 player” when referring to a recentNanocommercial), or I at least think the same in my brain. The reason,I think, is that Apple is a better Sony than Sony is – When I wasyoung lad, Sony represented technologically innovative, stylish,high quality products. Apple of course followed in Sony’sfootsteps, so much so that it Out-Sony’d Sony.

So I beseech SteveJobs and HowardStringer – please merge to save me the confusion. Thanks.
