it's the little differences

I just got this error message from iTunes:
There are no speakers connected to the AirTunes device "living room".

I checked, and indeed, the speaker cable became unplugged from my Airport Express during the move last Friday. Plugged it back in, and the music started playing. I think it's the little things like that that make being an Apple user feel like belonging to a cult. It can be hard to articulate to your friends what draws you to Apple, other than the shininess. Certainly, their products are often expensive, slow, and imperfect in many other ways. But every time I come across another such instance of attention to detail, I know that I'm going to keep using them. And keep telling my friends: "just try it, you'll see."
