Who didn't see this coming?
Be fair. If you are given the privilege of looking at Apple products, you should be honored to pay. Those 5 Dollars is your fee for your glimpse into the orgasmic supremacy of Apple products.
Sadly, now Homeless Fez can't go in.
I won't pay $10 to go to a movie, I'm not paying $5 to go into a store .... I'll just go to Sprint where they let me play with all the phones for free
Of course they do. Apple has been shitting into the mouths of their customers since the company was created and their customers have just been gobbling it up and asking for more.
I suspect that most of Apple's consumer base is pre-disposed to that kind of thing.
Thanks, I'll use that for a while if you don't mind.
Called "the world's greatest tech humour site" by The Register, BBspot creates entertainment for the geekier side of the world. BBspot produces a variety of features like fake news stories satirizing the tech and political worlds...
It's strange timing. The phone has been out for weeks, and I find it hard to believe that the hype is as strong.
and my mother wonders why i keep telling her not to buy an apple, fuckers wont get a dime out of me for entering there store
It's a fake story, but hey, don't let that get in the way.
Yes, I noticed that when I visited the link...
Doesn't make Mr. Plunkies' post any less true.
Oh please. I've been a music producer and engineer for years. The only reason I like Macs is because for what I need them to do they do exceptionally well.
For graphics, and for music they are incredibly invaluable. It has nothing to do with being cool or hip or anything else. Just like a mechanic wants the best tools in his garage people who do audio/video work want the best tools as well.
Nobody is thinking they are superior to PC users as much as PC users like to think they are. Hell I use PC, Mac, Linux, Unix, I even have an Amiga I still use.
Nobody is buying Macs to spite you people, maybe we just like the fucking things.
On a side note, there's reports of a certain version of iPhones with defective LCD screens. My friend has one.
iPhone Polka Dots
I knew it was fake. FIVE DULLARS seemed a bit high.
"Part of the move was to limit crowds to keep the stores safe, but also we wanted to keep the right kind of people in the stores,"
darn, I was hoping I could go and not have to deal with "those kind of people"
I know what you mean.
I agree. I don't use a MAC but I would if I worked with audio or graphics regularly. Macs have their corner of the market and I cannot fault anyone who's primary use fits in Mac's corner for choosing a Mac. It's common sense really.
I disagree. You may not. But there are plenty of flakey douches out there who think they are an elite group of uber users that are getting over on the rest of the world because they know the great secret that is Mac. It's not every Mac user. Hell, it's not even most Mac users. But there are as many people out there who will feel superior for using a Mac as there are people who feel superior for using a PC. And they are all idiots in my opinion.
Maybe i'm just thinking of the people I deal with cause i'm sure there are some overly pompous douches out there that do look down on PC users. I can agree with you. The marketing I think kind of leads to a lot of it too. The slim neatly dressed cool guy vs the bigger more clumsy looking older guy. It gives off the "I'm better than you" vibe.
I still say the key is mastering as many platforms as possible. Or at least knowing your way around other systems. It pays off.
Haha, a mac user looking down on a pc user? That's kind of like a Guitar Hero 2 player looking down on a real guitar player.
Damn, now I want to use that one!
While Apple Geniuses patrol inside the store, Apple "Muscleheads" will guard the window displays and entrances.
This made me laugh, what is an apple musclehead? A guy with a giant pocket protector? I know its a fake story but it is funny. mathletes guarding the store.
So if there's a cover charge, at the end of the night, does Steve Jobs get a percentage of the door?
And yet we Mac users are the "elitists?"
Not elitists, just a bunch of whiny faggots.
