A term describing the communistic traits of the Apple corporation, founded by Steve Jobs. Applenism is a result of no one apple compliance being compatible with any other operating system or compliance other than itself. Compatibility with outside surrounding forces is possible, yet there is a wall of insurmountable force to breach. When buying the apple computer, you must then purchase an iPod to ensure everything is in working order.
Applenism will ensure the music bought is fine...as long as you want to keep it in iTunes. If any attempts are made to extract the valuable tunes from its software, one may lose his/her mind or become subjugated to by a iPad...even though it has nothing to do with iTunes; a prime example of the brainwashing of Applenism.
Much like communism, Applenism is accepted by many, and they look for the day Steve Jobs rises from the grave as the antichrist. For others who may find apple products a simple and cool fun device, we fight for freedom and the ability to pay $0.99 for songs without firmware, another prim example of applenism.
Friend: "Dude this music wont play, on my freaken device, what up with this."
Me: "Have you been taken captive by applenism and bought an iPod?"
Me "Then you must my child, MUAHAHAHAHA!!!"
