Apple! Mac! iPhone! Steve Jobs! WWDC! Why Do I Feel Like A Loser?
Today is Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference. If you don't own a Mac (I don't), don't own an iPhone (I don't) and don't live in San Francisco (I don't), clearly you are a loser of gargantuan proportions (I must be).
Is it a good thing or a bad thing when a brand has so much influence that it makes a person feel unworthy (I do) if they aren't a "club member?"
I've owned a Mac in its previous heydays (No, this is not the first time Apple has been insanely cool), but there was always one annoying thing that prevented me from coming back: some stupid employer edict, a must-have piece of software that wouldn't work on a Mac, an idiotic networking issue, the prevalence of cheap (though decidedly uncool) PCs, or the fact Club Mac simply didn't have the same sway Apple stores now do.
But, times have changes. Want all the coolness of a Mac but still be able to run that stupid time sheet or ad serving software" Just fired up Windows in a Space on Mac and you're all good. Or so they tell me.
Hmm. Maybe I will buy a Mac next time around. Can someone please send me a virus so my Dell will die and I'll *have* to go buy a Mac? Just tell me first so I can back everything up:-)
