Is that an apple in your pocket?

Applied Beauty
with apologies to Gerard Manley Hopkins
Praise Steve Jobs for Apple-ed things—
  for silver-sleek MacBooks we click with now;
    for iPads, multi-apped, bright-hued and trim;
for wafer-thin iPhones from where there spring
  virtual assistants that cue and call. How,
    with lowly landlines, did we relate before them?

Well-celled teens today find phone booths strange.
  Inventions evert the robes of habit and allow
    advancing time, yet all that's new is interim.
Jobs sired devices wired to change;
                                 Google him.
