Defending Apple While They’re Down

I was going to write something very eloquent and beautiful for my 300th post today. I was going to review something great. Then, I read this absolutely fabulous article and I knew that instead, I need to share the words that so powerfully defend my favorite, currently embattled company.

Apple has definitely taken a beating in the stock market and the press recently. But, I have paid relatively little attention to it, because like this article says, Apple still beat Google with 1 quarter's earnings matching an entire year for Google. Apple is still setting records, selling amazing products that launched industries, and is still capable of producing products that will change our world.

I've heard the Android fans calling people like me blind and sheep. Isn't that always the taunt of people who oppose you or think differently than you do? But, I never entered the Apple/Android fray. I don't see a problem. I don't need an enemy. They can both exist and both be great and we can all have just what we want without calling others names and degrading that which we do not agree with. We can agree to disagree when it comes to technology. After all, is all of this really worth the animosity displayed over phones and their operating systems?

So, for my 300th post, do me a favor and read this article by Jonny Evans. Apple fans will feel a little better, Android fans may learn something they didn't know, and maybe we can all just get along in the end. Is it a deal?

I'll be back with a review or 2 tonight. That's it for me for now. Until later, …

The Evolution of Geek

I spent way too much time in my Tumblr app today looking at infographics. This one caught my eye and I knew I definitely needed to share it.

I'm going to do 2 more roundups of infographics in just a bit. One is on the state of social media in 2012 and the other is on Apple, Apple, Apple (is anyone surprised?). So, stay tuned.

By the way, what kind of geek are you?
