A company that makes superior computers to that of any other PC maker out there due to their incredible design and choice of premium parts. The boring, poor consumer is often too cheap to even considering buying a computer that actually works, and will end up with a $499 emachines bundle that includes a free printer because they are obsessed with saving that extra few hundred bucks on a machine they will be using for the next three years and beyond.
After their OS technology was stolen from Microsoft in the 80s because apple failed to license it, everything went down hill. Mainstream consumers and businesses alike choose PCs due to their cheap price, and boring software so as to hinder creativity.
"Well apples still suck and they are slow and way overpriced," you may say. Well, then why is that the most discriminating computer audiences in the world, mainly video, graphics, and music production professionals, are on Macs, refusing to move to PCs?
Because Macs are better.
Take a look at Mercedes. They both have less than 3% of the automobile market, yet again, are purchased by those who can afford them and prefer the ultimate driving experience. Simply put, Macs are the Mercedes of computers, and the rest of you are the ones stuck in your shitty geo prisms and kea spectras and 1992 toyota corollas, who try to make them look nicer by putting on a set of pimped out rims.
And for the record, MS has been making its Office software for the Mac almost as long for the Mac as it has been for the PC. In fact, PowerPoint came out for the Mac nearly 2 years before it did for the PC.
PC USER: "I'm 32, live at home, constantly game with other teens, spend my days surfing the web for boring needless nerdy pieces of information, make weekly trips to the local computer store, have a star wars obsession, collect pokemon cards, obsess over finding the cheapest parts and rebates, endlessly try to fight spyware and viruses, and get into arguements over which new case light has better fiberobtic technology."
MAC USER: "I wish PC users would just shut the fuck up and leave us alone. If you think Macs suck, fine. Go on ahead and believe what you want. But I know the truth"
The alternative to the orange.
Today, I do not wish to consume an apple. I shall seek alternative fruits.
A horrendous company that has somehow managed to stay afloat for years and appeal to a mass of misguided people. They specialize in taking existing technology, making it all shiny and fancy looking, and re-selling it for double the price. Ironically, their slogan is "Think Different".
Their latest and greatest gadget that's getting all the attention is, of course, the iPhone, which is basically comparable to any high-quality $150 phone, except it has "innovative" touch screen technology, and it sells for $600.
Apple couldn't quite figure out how to make an operating system, so they just stole the freeBSD kernel and repackaged a bastardized version of it as Mac OS X. It's funny that Apple brags that it's "Unix-based", since no one with experience in Unix would ever use a Mac.
Apple frequently runs "clever" ads. Although they've made a ton of them, all the ads boil down to how Windows has viruses and crashes all the time. Apple also have an enormous, cult-like fanbase that like to remind us of these things every five seconds. Apple fanboys are generally smug, annoying, and arrogant, despite the fact that most of them don't know jack shit about computers.
Apple Fanboy: "M$ is teh sux0r! Apple pwns!"
Windows User: "Windows has a wide selection of software and games, and a huge developer community."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT IT CRASHES AND HAS VIRUSES LOL"
Windows User: "My OS hasn't crashed since I had Windows ME. And AVG is a free program that keeps my computer secure."
Apple Fanboy: "BUT WINDOZE SUXX!"
Windows User: "Would you care to tell me about your Mac? I hear it doesn't have many tools for software developers, which are important for my work."
Apple Fanboy: "lolololol but windows sucks!!!11"
Windows User: "Did you know that a great amout of Apple software is made with Microsoft Visual C++?"
Apple Fanboy: "omg wtf is C++?"
