Supplemental Question of the Day

I know there are exceptions. Many of the exceptions are on my friends
list, in fact.

Why is it that so many Mac users are so intent on telling anybody and
everybody in every way they can that they're using a Mac?


Hi Bruce, I linked to your LJ from the Pac mate listserv. If I remember correctly, I also saw you on a list related to the Seeing Eye when I was considering going there for a dog. Anyway, mind if I add you to my friends' list? Anyone who wonders that about a Mac is worthy of being called a friend, especially considering I know some of the "exceptions" you mentioned! LOL! It's like I told my friend Jesse. I'm content with my Lenovo Thinkpad and don't intend to learn a new OS any time soon.
I just got a Lenovo laptop a few months ago and absolutely love it. No, you wouldn't have seen me on any guide dog list. I was thinking of going for a dog at one point, but never did, and probably never will, I just don't think a dog is for me. I'd be honored if you added me as a friend, thanks so much for writing.
Which Lenovo did you get? I got the Thinkpad X61 and love its portability!
Because owning a MAC product is akin to driving a Porsche. It's a status symbol. If Apple is good at anything, it's marketing.

MACs started out as being for people in the creative industry because they run the graphics programs better. I'm not sure if that is true today, but my post-secondary education conditioned me to believe so. That is why I still use one. But hopefully I don't "boast" about it in the manner you describe.
Oh no, you're far from the sort of people I'm talking about. For you to be that way, you would have to start putting "Deb on Mac" as the name field in your e-mail address, then you'd have to put "Message composed on a Mac" in your signature, and you would have to go to great lengths to say "my Mac" at every conversational turn you can, and to top things off you would have to take as many pot shots at Windows as is humanly possible, and call it things like Trashbox PC. No, no, I wasn't refering to you at all in any way.
A MAC owner's favorite perfume is "Eau de Pretension". What can I say.
*GRIN* The Mac is a great machine. I know enough people who use and love it to understand that point.
