Apple fans nailed

Apple fans (and I'd count myself one of them) are cruelly but grain-of-truthfully described in this spoof advert. Here's the header:-

but the body text that follows it on Gizmodo's site is well worth a read.

  1. I watched Steve Jobs presentation over coffee this morning and have to say I got sucked in. When I replace my current knackered PC I am really really going to look at Apple – but I kind of feel that the SUN CEO pointed out something pretty important when he quotes – Developers don't buy things, they join things – Buying an Apple product isn't like buying a widget, it's like joining a cult.

    I took the opportunity to visit the new Apple store in London last week; it's rather cleverly located within a stone's throw of Hamleys, thus requiring considerable resolve on my part to drag myself away to BETT 2005. Their stand at BETT was also below zero in the style stakes; Microsoft had to resort to giving out free t-shirts and copies of Encarta to persuade people to sit in one of their seminars. Apple had a minimalist all-black affair with the devices laid out in a line and there was a queue to get on the stand. I also noticed that in London everyone seems to have iPod. Apple are clearly riding the crest of a (deserved) wave at the moment.
