What’s this?

There are nerds and there are dressers, and supposedly never the twain shall meet. Virtually every attempt at computer stuff-as-fashion results in just plain ugly, and just about every expression of fashion-as-computer stuff is unusable or impractical, but I don’t really see why that has to be so.
