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.

10 Commandments from the Lord Thy Jobs
---------------------------------------------------------------

1. The Lord thy Jobs hath one button, and the number of buttons is one. Thou shall have no other buttons before thee.

2. Thou shall not take upon thy Mac any graven images. Neither of creatures that creep, nor of swimming blow fish.

3. Thou shall not take the name of thy Mac in vain. It is normal and good to reboot regularly.

4. Though shall remember the Apple Store and keep it holy.

5. Thou shall remember thy motherboard and honor it. Though shalt not allow dust to prevail therein.

6. Thou shall not kill the power to thy Mac except by shutting down properly.

7. Though shall not adulter thyself by running Windows, Linux, or any other OS except thy wife, the OS of X.

8. Neither shall thou steal from the Lord the Jobs by installing Mac software on any other machine except thy Apple-provided Mac.

9. You shall not bear false witness to thy neighbor - Macs do not cost more, if you factor in total cost of ownership.

10. Thou shall not covet your neighbor's computer, especially if it is a Macbook Pro, of the unibody construction. Neither shall thou desire your neighbors's iPad 2 or white iPhone 4.
