If the small pleasures are really the ones that count, there's a special one that I had the opportunity to try in its full power last week. After being an iPad 2 user for over 1 year, I've bought the new iPad (Apple Store, Amsterdam).
As I started to open it, I felt like I was in some sort of Pirate/treasure hunt movie, when they open the treasure chest and that golden glow shines upon their face.
I'm totally serious when I say that the iPad is probably one of the most beautiful things that exist. It doesn't have any exotic shape, there's not much detail, but its finishing is absolutely stunning.
Minimalist in design: there are only the elementary elements, like a few pictures, some information, and of course, the apple logo. I really felt like I had won the lottery.
I'm proud to be an apple-user. Every single day.
