“I can’t be arsed to go out there and defend Apple products, they speak and sell for themselves. If you think the world is fine enough in all other areas for there to be room for you to be all angry about Apple, then go ahead and be angry. It’s your spleen. Do what you like with it.”

This wonderful quote is from Mac at 30 piece by Stephen Fry. 

I pretty much live the same philosophy when it comes to talking about Apple. 

Here’s another one of favourite from the afore-mentioned piece:

Steve Jobs, whom I had the privilege of knowing, always said, and he meant it, that he had nothing but the hugest respect for Bill Gates’s business acumen, and nothing but the profoundest contempt for his taste.

“You know we’re constantly taking. We don’t make most of the food we eat, we don’t grow it, anyway. We wear clothes other people make, we speak a language other people developed, we use a mathematics other people evolved and spent their lives building. I mean we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful ecstatic feeling to create something and put it into the pool of human experience and knowledge.”

I’ve been a Mac User since October of 2010. The First Mac i touched was a Mid-2010 White Polycarbonate MacBook. The first i owned was a Mid-2010 13-Inch MacBook Pro. 

I really hated computers and technology when i was young but all changed when i discovered the elegance of a Mac running OS X. I’ve never been the same since then.
