I 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?

Most of the readers that come to this site, do so because they have at least one Apple product. (or are doing research to buy one.) I got to thinking about this last week, so I figured I’d write something up and see what other Apple people thought. Last week was the launch of the [...]
This question has been floating around for a while, and I wanted to weigh in and get your opinion. At all things D, Apple CEO Tim Cook, said that the days of the PC were fading, and everyone wants mobility. Is this true? I’m not sure if it is because I have been working with [...]
Cases are one of the last things most people think about. Usually, you never think about until something bad happens and you wish that you had a case on your phone, iPad or whatever expensive device you need to have protected. This week I had the chance to evaluate the iPad 2 case from MobileFun. [...]
Many people use their computers for a multitude of things. Some just want to surf the internet and check email. These aren’t the people I am addressing here. The people I am focusing on right now do some very specific things. Some are podcasters, bloggers, video editors, photographers or graphic designers. If you do any [...]
My last post was about iTunes 11, and that started me thinking about different music players. In Windows you also have iTunes but also Windows Media Player. But I would be remiss to not discuss other music players. There are many out there and may have there own strengths and weaknesses. So let’s get to [...]
