I was participating in an online debate if plain packaging would decrease smoking and somebody posted this picture:
So I started thinking Apple iCigarettes would look like that, if Apple for some reason jumped into the cigarette game. That pack is sleek, silver, and minimalist. They would have yuppies gladly forking over twenty bucks a pack, I’ll bet. In no time, they’ll allow smoking in offices again because suddenly smoking would be socially desirable. Never underestimate Apple’s marketing clout and ability to make a bad habit trendy.
Apple could start with those, but build more upmarket smokes. Maybe give it a few gigs of flash memory, wifi capability, 3G wireless (4G model available after a year or so) and a screen. That way smokers could Facebook and Twitter in Starbucks without having to carry any extra gadgets.
