These Mac people…

This is the funniest thing I have read all week — about an Apple switcher who was hesitant to do so because of the ‘aesthetics’ involved.

I was very wary to cross this line, convinced that once I owned an Apple product, I’d have to start typing all in lowercase, wearing scarves indoors, and listening to a lot of Belle & Sebastian. I’m aware that this is my own skewed stereotype, because about 90% of the people I know and love own Macs, and not one of them makes me choke on twee. Clearly, this is all in my own head, but it loomed very large in there: it made perfect sense to me that I could not own an Mac simply because I like dive bars and men who don’t put product in their hair…

…I think a lot of this comes from the annoying iPod commercials, and just the interior of the Apple store itself — it’s all brightly-lit and full of right angles, and free of clutter or any human involvement, like an IKEA catalog fucked Annette Bening. I do not feel comfortable in the Apple store; I feel like I should lint-brush my clothes.
