I was walking out of the house yesterday when I realized how much of an Apple fanboy I’ve become.
I was carrying my 3rd generation iPad, clipped to my shirt was a 6th generation iPod nano, and had an iPhone 5s in my pocket. In the house, I had left behind my decked-out 27″ iMac with its trackpad, mouse and keyboard. I also have an iPad shuffle, and I had a Macbook Air, but gave it to my brother when I realized I really had no use for it, but now with the Manila Standard job, I think I might need one again and am thinking of getting a new one. Maybe a Macbook Pro this time. A 15″ one. I’m also thinking of upgrading my phone to an iPhone 6 Plus, my iPad 3 to an iPad Air 2 and pretty soon I think I might have an Apple Watch strapped to my wrist.
In the past, I’ve had a whole bunch of previous iterations of the Apple computer, beginning with the Apple II Plus in college, all the way to the original Mac, MacBooks, Mac Pros, and all manner of Apple accessories. I’ve also had an Apple Quicktake, an Apple Newton Messenger, and was president of the local Apple User’s group, PhilMUG, for several years. Am still a moderator there, and I’m still pretty active.
My whole life revolves around my Apple products, in particular my Mac. It’s on the whole day and night, and it’s the first thing I check on in the morning, checking my email, my Twitter feed, checking and updating my sites and doing my writing on it, and everything else I can think of.
And I’m pretty happy being enmeshed in my Apple world. To hell with Windows and PCs. Gimme a Mac any day.
