Apple Well, this will come as no surprise to OSNews readers, but as outlined in a recent BBC documentary, UK neuroscientists have studied brain scans of hard-core Apple fans and have found that their mental reactions to Apple imagery are quite similar to scans of religious devotees' brains when shown images of their iconography. The DigitalTrends article summarizing the finding singles out Apple users, but I think we all know that, RDF aside, this is not an Apple-only phenomenon.

Also one can't become an Apple fanatic before you get influenced. That just proves Apple knows how to make cool stuff and more important sell it. At least their stuff has a personality (like most computers did in the 80's). Other companies just try to bump the specs, dish it out and pull it as quickly if it doesn't sell well enough.

I believe it's their clever marketing that makes you think they make cool stuff. Their stuff is still just dumbed down Unix, much less cool than my customized LFS but they sell it like something magic and the fans do that marketing for them. That is what the personality of their stuff is about in my opinion.
