    The book is essentially misogynistic. Women are objects of hedonistic possibilities in the same way that drugs are. Even the Kerouac figure Sal's self-deprecating account of failing to impress a virginal lover manages to marginalise the woman in question. The film seeks to rectify this by giving flesh to its female characters.

    One day when I was out shopping for underwear five women in burqas came into the store. Chatting and laughing, they headed straight to a selection of lacy g-strings, holding up the garments for all to see as they checked sizes and made loud comments about each pair of panties.

    With sexy, user-friendly devices such as the iPhone and iPad, Apple appears to be succeeding at creating 'human' technology that changes lives and connects them to others. It should come as no surprise that women are one of the fastest growing consumer groups of Apple products.
