Look at  your computer right now, is it gray? If not, was it once gray and now that color of spoiled milk? If so, your computer is not post-gray.

Is your computer Dell-black? Is it Apple-white or clear or red or blue or purple? If so, then you and your computer are proud participants in the post-gray movement.

Post-gray is not so much a cultural revolution or the color of computers, but the hardware evolution of the lonely unnetworkable PCs made in the mid-to-late 90s that never work and sit in your closet. Post-gray is the buzzword (in other words I didn't make it up) that embodies the progressive desires of the PC Aristocracy to sell you and your business gigahertzed computers that hook up easier than college dormies.

The post-gray reality is here. The kind clergy of the computer world have given us laser mice, flat monitors, and DSL. Good riddance to the roller mice, thirty pound 15" theatres, and serial cables of the distant 20th century. Our computers are post-gray and so are we. We are so post-gray that if Dell put out a gray computer it would be fashionable again... but it would still be post-gray.

My cubicle features an Old Regime 500Mhz PC encapsulated in yellow and a streamlined 2.4Ghz Dell, dude, with flat monitor and laser mouse: Pride of the post-gray regime.  Only one is connected to the internet right now. One is a steam engine, the other is cold fusion. One weighs more than a boulder, the other can sit on my shoulder. Sir, welcome to the post-gray world.

Actually, forget it. It's just style over substance.
