A little blood welled as I withdrew the needle, and I sank back into my armchair. This was far from my first time injecting — but it would be the first time an Apple event directly acknowledged my chemical dependency.

Today I not so much conquered my fear as stared it square in the eye, climbing nearly a kilometre up the side of a mountain in a swinging death can on a string (aka a cable car).
