Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

Let's take a look what you just did with your comment shall we?

You don't know anything about me...you don't know whether I work in a Mac store. You don't know whether I work for Apple. You don't know whether I work for a school system in IT and work on Macs all day long. You know NOTHING about me...but you've got me pegged as some stereotyping fool based on a single sentence in my comment...

All without even addressing the topic of the comment...that Apple is not selling products any longer...but lifestyles.

Thanks for missing the point entirely. Thanks further for trying to push me into a corner and label me.


I don't dislike Apple products. I have 2 generations of ipad and an new imac. As for my laptops...I don't like the fact that I can't repair Macs so I don't use them there.

This isn't a sweeping generalization...it's an observation based on an interaction I had AND the fact that I service thousands of Apple devices in my job...I have to deal with tons of Apple 'fans' daily.

In my opinion, people who use Apple products (specifically, laptops) look down on others who don't. Since it is not readily apparent to my users at work that I am an Apple product guy (android phone, windows/linux laptop...I don't bring my iPad to work since my job provided me with one there) I get flipped a lot of crap by others. The minute they think I'm not a Mac guy...I become less than knowledgeable. This is my observation over the past 5 years dealing with Mac users in an enterprise environment and also a girl in the coffee shop.

If this observation/opinion hurts your feelings...you need to re-examine how you approach topics on the internet.
