How Irrational Are You About Your SmartPhone?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 06:00 AM

http://www.marco.org/2012/01/04/fanboy-theory

"Why is it that your choice of smartphone platform incites so much irrational anger and so many accusations of being a 'fanboy' from people who use a different one?"

It all boils down to not saying a darn thing. Or if you do express a positive opinion about your phone be prepared for the onslaught of vitriol from those that don't own the same phone. At least that is the warning from Marco of Marco.org and Instapaper fame. Can't say I don't agree with him, people are very protective about their particular phone, and I have to agree with him on why: people don't like to be told that they are wrong and if you dis their phone you are basically telling them they have made the wrong choice. What are your thoughts?

Are You a Fanboy? This Chart Should Help Determine Where You Stand

"In the coming days, if you don't restrain your enthusiasm for Apple's new iPhone introductions, you'll invariably be called fanboy or fangirl (fanperson?)."

Heh,heh, self diagnosis at almost 51%. I guess by this chart I am indeed a fanboy, even though I never really considered myself one. Numbers don't lie though do they?

No matter where you fall on the Apple/Windows side of the fence, you have to admit this is utterly hilarious - I love the way it plays to the fanboy stereotypes. ;-)

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Articles & Resources" @ 09:00 AM

"To kick start Apple Week here at CotyGonzales.com, I've compiled a comprehensive list of Apple T-Shirt suitable for any Apple Fanboy or MacHead! And chances are, if you're a MacAddict like me, you probably own a few of these shirts already! Later in the week I'll be posting a list of Official Apple Released T-Shirts. They have a long history of releasing T-Shirts to members of specific Apple projects - be on the lookout for that coming sometime this week!"

Great list of t-shirts that offer something for everyone, with links on where you can buy them. Worth checking out!

Zune Fan Reacts to Apple Event

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 12:00 PM

"Because I'm sitting here watching the superb gdgt coverage of the Apple iPod event, I figured I might as well multi-task and jot down some point form reactions and thoughts on what I'm reading."

There really isn't any controversy, I just like the comic. And since I'm suggesting you check out an article written from a Zune owners perspective, I thought it was appropriate, you know, feed the flame. But I digress! Jason from Digital Home Thoughts posted an article on his reactions to the Apple's "Its Only Rock and Roll" event yesterday. I think it is worth reading. I have the perspective of someone that has pretty much gone Apple, except for my Xbox at home and the PCs I use at work. I always enjoy these events and get excited about what Apple is coming out with next, but I don't think I'm a fanatic by any means. I think it is always good to see the other side, to get their perspective on things, and I thought it was an interesting article with some very good points. So head on over and jump into the fray if you haven't already!
