my friends accuse me of being an apple "fanboy". i think i am more their "last customer" which will mark their decline a la micrsoft after the tech bubble
when i was first diagnosed with cancer a good friend of mine talked me into buying an ipod and i converted all my CDs to MP3s and sold them, which paid for the ipod and left me enough change for lunch. i changed the deck in my truck to one that was ipod compatible. i can now listen to all the music i have ever liked any time i want.
i've logged hundreds and hundreds of hours on a bike in the gym listening to that ipod, which now has at least 700 albums on it. then i bought an iphone and that product has revolutionized communication for me just like it has done for the whole world. i finally "got it".
Steve Jobs was a genius like, say, Thomas Edison. i can now ride the bike in the gym and watch all my favorite groups perform on youtube, or i can surf the web -- read this forum -- or make calls or send text messages. i sometimes take a picture of the LED display on the bike and e-mail it to friends.
the ipad has replaced my netbook which i used when i was out of town or as a back up to my PC. the products are all intuitive and work without any glitches. i have definitely become a fan of apple.
