The website isn't aimed at grown professionals so the articles aren't written in a way like The Times or The Guardian, as you seem to think they should be. They're opinion pieces on the website. It's the house style of the company. Obviously a style you can't appreciate.The article is garbage and unprofessional.. If you do not like Apple then that is cool but you could write the article in a professional tone..
Of course. Because you're so against the sheep mentality, and all.I haven’t bought any of their products due to a deep-rooted yet irrational hatred
I'm not just being a sheep. It is completely my opinion. I said I like some of their products and I even say in the article that they're at the forefront of design and innovation, and that they revolutionised the way we listen to music.Of course. Because you're so against the sheep mentality, and all.
Bashing Apple. Seems it's the cool thing to do.
You like playing with fire, I take it?
I admit, a lot of their products are great. The iPod is amazing. I really like them. My interest is just in the cult following they've got. I also think the pricing of a lot of their laptops is... questionable. But it's interesting that so many people are willing to go to such lengths to be the first to get their hands on their products. The only other company I can really think of that have a similar following is Hello Kitty in Japan.Why do people become obsessed with Apple fans? Can't we just use our products in peace without being over-analyzed? They're good products from a good company. It's not rocket science here.
YAWN..just proving my point of people being overly-attached to Apple.
A better question would have been why are people loyal to ANY brand.. Like Apple, many companies have loyal and devoted followers..
I can go on but you get the hint. Some people enjoy the product that a certain company puts out and they trust it.. There are many who may want to switch to "the dark side" of competitors but they don't because they are heavily entrenched into that companies eco system. This mainly holds true for electronics (consumption devices ect)
Apple fans are no different than say Android fans.. Ever been to XDA? Not only are they loyal to the Android OS but they are loyal to the device manufacturer as well.. This is NOT a slam on Android because I have owned many Android devices..
I always land back with Apple because I love the build quality and the polished OS.. You may call me an iSheep if you want just because I like Apple and that's fine because it does not bother me..
When I spend my hard earned $$ I want a quality built device that is polished and supported not plastic and cheap that is lucky if it gets updated OS / software..
I typed much more than I should have in response to an obvious troll post but there you go.. My brief response to your Q..
Have a nice day and try to not hate so much.. It's bad for the soul and will cause ulcers.. Use and buy what meets YOUR needs then buy it again if it continues to meet your need in the future..
I really agree with what you've said there. It's the whole package in the customer experience. Sorry to hear about your wife having such a crap time with the customer service too!I think people say similar things about people who buy Sony.
There is some level of brand loyalty when making an Apple or Sony purchase. This starts with, but at times goes past product quality. It's service, purchase experience, stores -- all of it. It creates a comfort level when buying an Apple product.
Now I personally had a , which directly affected my wife's current phone situation. Is she jumping ship to Android or Windows Phone. Not even a consideration. For her, the product is far superior and she would never consider another phone.
Apple does lots of things right. As a result, people buy lots of their products. I don't necessarily agree there is any premium cost associated with their products. Maybe years ago. iMac, iPhone, iPad? Where are you getting similar quality products at those prices.
I buy great products. That's my benchmark.Whereas, as you said, an Apple customer, no matter what happens, bad service or good service, will stick with them.
I will briefly answer this statement..In my article, I say I can understand where the following has stemmed from and why people love it so much. Personally though, I just can't imagine paying such prices for a product, when ones with similar / better specs are out there for cheaper prices.
Obviously, if you have an iPhone or a Mac I'm not going to judge people negatively, I'd just judge negatively if you were someone who waits outside an Apple shop for days for a product that isn't exactly limited edition.
