Apple, very funny

June 21, 2010 – Comments (13) | RELATED TICKERS: AAPL

In case none of you have seen this, this is very funny.

BTW I have no real opinion on Apple. I use their products very infrequently and own none of them (and while I dislike Win-doze, I use it for my work because nearly all Aerospace mechanical analysis software is written for either Windows or Unix). I am a big UNIX and BSD weenie (and before some smart-aleck makes a comment, yes I am aware that Mac OS-whichever is built on top of FreeBSD, which does up their credibility slightly in my mind).

The reason Apple is becoming so unique in the US is that it makes things that the rest of the world wants but can't reproduce.

It's like what GM used to be, but so few people now remember that the US can mass produce quality goods at reasonable prices.  This is likely to happen again, but out of necessity, if the Yuan really does decouple from the US dollar.

Hey man!

>>The reason Apple is becoming so unique in the US is that it makes things that the rest of the world wants but can't reproduce.

Agreed.

Completely agreed. This is why I am a long term optimist. America will become a production soceity again, and combined with innvoation, I am very bullish on the US's long term prospects. But not here and not from these price levels :(..

Is that paper clip thingie a Microsoft joke?  It looks like the little cartoon that shows up when you use MS Office.

Been trying to get used to a windows computer for access to better trading platform. It is junk. It totally expects me to cater to it, and cannot do anything instinctively, like my mac. You have to either be destitute, or be the sort who wants to understand the ins and outs of computer jargon, and constantly be warned of how susceptible it is to so many unknown threats via down loads. I decided whatever I'd save in money on a pc, I'd save 5 times over in my time, and 20 times over in frustration by just getting a mac. It's a tool. It works for me. I never find myself doing hours of work for it. Windows is retarded. The local guy who fixes pcs uses a mac in his office. 

How this will save the economy however, is over my head.

Fair enough, like I said at the beginning I neither like nor dislike Apple products, I have no real opinion on them. But they definitely have a market and I can certainly understand why people love their products.

Mine too :)..

I totally agree, and definitely don't dispute it. I just found the comic to be an over the top (and hence funny) description of the fervor of Mac and Apple products lovers. It just amused me, that's all :).
