TV presenter values MacBook Air over face

Celebrity Gadgets, Computers, Laptops / Notebooks


So revered is the MacBook Air by some that they care more for its safety than their own. At least, that seems to be what happened to US TV presenter Charlie Rose.

Appearing on a recent show with a black eye and a plaster above it, the story goes that Charlie tripped in a Manhattan pothole while carrying his newly purchased MacBook Air.

Instead of letting the wafer-thin computer crash to the ground, he protected it by sacrificing his face, which he planted neatly into the sidewalk. OUCH!

“The Macbook Air is fine, he showed us the blood stains on it this morning,” said the show’s producers.

According to Tech Crunch, Rose is well up on the latest technology. Evidently, he really doesn’t like to see it get broken, either. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Air is nestled somewhere under that pile of papers on his desk.

Do you love your gadgets enough to sacrifice body parts for them?
