Apple Using his blue box, Steve Wozniak once called the Vatican (for free), and, imitating Henry Kissinger's voice, asked if he could speak with the pope. The pope turned out to be asleep. Wozniak pulled these pranks together with Steve Jobs, with whom he'd found Apple computer not long after. Oh, how the times have changed. How can a company with its roots in phreaking, pranks, and home-made computing end up the way it is today?

Also, there is no issue with anyone liking or disliking a company. "Liking" something is not akin to looking to it for emotional fulfillment, though.

I have nothing against Thom. I was simply pointing out that some people's attachment to Apple is a little bit ridiculous at times. They are not a religion, and they're only selling pretty boxes that do things -- nothing more, nothing less. I think some Internet nerds often forget this.
