I received a call from Apple's Press office today, asking me if I'd update my review of the iPod shuffle to mention that it now comes in a range of colours.

This I was of course happy to do, but it got me thinking about Apple and its funny relationship with colours. I realised that Apple isn't much fun any more - which goes against its much-loved brand.

As I'm mostly occupied on PC Advisor the review is over there. *

You can read my thoughts on Apple's boringness over on PC Advisor, as well. It's a good chance for some Macworld readers to lecture the PC guys!

* Yes, I have found the Dark Side, but I still write a column in Macworld and obviously still use a Mac. Think of me as an agent of the Mac rooted deep inside enemy territory.
