2. yeah, the "cult of Steve Jobs"

but isn't it interesting, about the brain reactions? Almost suggests my Bible-banging relatives could be converted with a new gadget. (and considering they're mostly a Tandy 3000 crowd, it may hold real promise!)

8. You think their brains light up?

Hard to imagine even a dim little candle in there.

3. Whenever I use my Dell with Windows, I frequently use the name of a deity.

On a bad day, mentioning the proclivitities of Oedipus -- but only on exceptionally bad days.

4. I hear that!

I frequently use colorful modifiers and the current (noun) in the Whitehouse in much of my day-to-day digital activity.

5. Applies to the Porsche addicts and Vinyl LP addicts (me) and many other things.

All your MacBook expects from you is to clean its screen and dust its keyboard and to keep liquids away from it. It requires very little praise from humans, although it does like to be upgraded every so often.
