Q: Is Apple fanaticism hitting an all-time high?

So I went shopping with a friend and noticed something strange. A kid had an apple logo for a haircut... has anyone seen this?

 

Why on Earth would any parent agree to do this? Are they that proud of their iPhones?

actually the fanaticism has peaked and is starting to slowly decline. thanks to the govt targeting of apple.

I must admit, I mainly see people with Samsung Galaxies these days. And the other evening we had dinner with my wifes boss and her family which includes a teenage girl. My wifes boss asked her teenage daughter if she likes my wifes phone (locally produced Android) and after some "blah blah, looks OK" she said she'd probably rather want a Samsung Galaxy S4, her mum has iPhone 4, her dad a HTC. 

There are so many people running around looking like .... well, actually I don't know what they look like, talking into their giant Samsung Galaxy Notes. Not knocking their choice of phablet, it's just very clunky looking when used as an actual phone. 

 

Also, last time there was a major iPhone release, Meizu released their MX2 phone (the day before or after) Meizu has their flagship store right next to an Apple store. The MX2 made hundreds queue, the iPhone not so much. Meizu is of course a company based here in Zhuhai, and their phones look great and are a lot cheaper. 

 

I think Apple will be on a long slow decline. Of course those with lots of money will keep replacing their iPhones with new ones. And an iPhone is a great product for the vast majority of people. The competition is just gaining fast.

Have you seen the "Apple" ebike? They're usually pink or green and have the bitten apple all over them. Hilarious. The iAppleEbike! 

 

I think iPhones will be like Harleys. Old tech with problems and a rabid fan base.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
