It’s like a stampede. Everywhere you look, it’s Apple, Apple, Apple and once again… yes, you guessed it, Apple! A technophone doesn’t know what to think. Should he hide? Should he talk about it? Should he ride the wave? Is there any point in resisting? Apple will find the technophobe anyway? Statistics on Apple are staggering. Those numbers are getting more and more varied, based on all the different trends emerging in connection with the usage of Apple products. But even a technophobe can see: their products sure look nice. So sleek and shiny and clean and pretty. Anywhere you go, someone has something from Apple. Whether small or big. It’s just omnipresent. Maybe that’s what makes some people hesitant. Any movie you go to see nowadays, it seems there’s at least one Mac in there, usually pretty prominently displayed. And don’t get us started on Apps- we are still resisting and we still don’t really know what they do, even though we seem to be able to joke about them. We do know there seems to be an App for almost everything. There are probably a lot of people out there reading this who we are making laugh right now. Bear with us.
The good thing is, there are so many Apple products to choose from, and they are appearing so fast, that no one will be left out whenever they decide to buy something in an Apple store. That’s probably a pretty accurate prognosis. Whatever you’re thinking about, dreaming about, Apple most likely has it. Or if not, they soon will. And as soon as you have whatever gadget or device you’ve been hunting for in your hand, you’ll probably immediately feel like your life has only now become sleeker and better, just like the product you bought. There are people out there who can’t use a normal computer or laptop keyboard for going online anymore, because they can only do it on their iphone.
Can you imagine? And they can’t use the old cell phones us technophobes still have either. Because the old phones have no screen you can scroll over with your finger. And according to statistical forecasts, iphone sales will only be going up. Whenever an Apple store opens somewhere, it’s like a parade on some national holiday. Police stand watch, hundreds of people stand in line and some almost cry when they finally get to go inside. What is it? What is it that makes them behave like that in relation to Apple? I think I have to ride the wave. It’s the only way to find out.
