iPhone users are sheep

I keep seeing all these posts about how iPhones are for smart people, and how Android is for poor people. There’s some flawed logic in these kinds of posts. For one. iPhone is simple, just like their users want. They don’t want to deal with customization. Personally, I’d take customization, a removable battery, and an SD card over a phone that’s supposedly secure and simple from the factory. I want to be able to control my phone. This isn’t how an iPhone user thinks.

My theory on why more of the successful and creative types use iPhone is that they just aren’t interested in the above. They don’t care that they can use an Android as a computer replacement, because their iPhone can make calls, send texts and surf the web. Though just because a person is successful doesn’t mean they are smart.

If anything, I would make an opposite claim that iPhone users aren’t as smart in the technical aspect of Android users. Because there’s more to Android, there’s more to figure out, more nooks and crannies for the ability to unlock unknown possibilities.

Plus, the fact is, with Android, users don’t have to let ONE company dictate what they get out of a phone. Why? Because there are TONS of Android options in all shapes, sizes, prices and customizability. And that to me, is smart.

The new reason to avoid Apple Macs.

It looks like the days of a user upgradeable mac have gone bye bye. The new MacBook pros, and some (if not all) of the iMacs are no longer user serviceable. What does this mean? Well if your RAM, Hard Drive or battery goes out, or you simply want to upgrade, you can no longer bring it to a 3rd party shop to fix, such as myself. Therefore you’re going to pay out the ass to fix anything. You will now also be stuck with the specs you bought with no way to upgrade without buying a whole new computer.

So whoever decided to solder the ram to the mobo, glue the battery in and use a pci-e hard drive. I hope you get raped and beaten with a old model 60lb Mac Pro. Apple, you can go fuck yourselves for this decision. Do everyone a favor and revert back to your old way.
