Apple Users

4 years ago in Apple, Articles by Wardy Miller | No Comments

apple-logoI guess the name of this article should be what kind of Apple user are you. I have been giving this a lot of thought lately. (Well since the release of Mavericks) and thought I would ask you the question. To my thinking there are 4 kinds of Apple users. Let’s go through them now and see if I miss any.

Apple Fan Boy/Girl- These are usually fairly easy to spot. They have the latest and greatest Apple device as soon as it is released, no matter what it is, it is almost as great as the second coming.

Apple apologist – This is the type of user that will buy most things that Apple releases, finds its short comings and still tries to convince everyone around him that even though it might not work exactly right, Apple will eventually tune the product and fix the issue.

Tech users – These users have no loyalty to any specific brand as long as the device meets their needs they are happy. This type of user will do research, talk to other users before making their decision.

Apple hater – This is the type of user that will hate anything Apple releases. They will try to justify their hatred because the iPod they bought 10 years ago, can no longer be charged.

The bottom line – Even though I used the term Apple users, these categories can be used to describe almost any tech group. Just switch Apple for Microsoft, Google, Linux, and on and on. While there is no problem enjoying your gadget, just remember that is what it is, just another gadget and not a religion. Or maybe it is a religion, and like any religion people are permitted to make their own choices and don’t deserve any kind of anger on anyones part. What do you think? Leave something in the comments.
