Welcome to the world of Apple. It is a happy place where they force you to pay up, keep paying up... or get out. Somehow they have to fatten their already absurdly fat profits.

I still hold out a small amount of hope that the world will wise up to their nasty ways someday. It is a sliver, just a tiny, thin sliver.

Apple marketing is successful in selling consumers a personality or status level. Much like 99% of the people who go to wine tasting. Just because they go to wine tasting they feel they are above those who drink a beer. The wine glass in their hand over a beer makes them better than you.

Image is everything, that is until you are dead. After which, you are nothing more than a rotting, ugly corpse. I wonder if Apple will look like a rotting, ugly corpse behind all that plastic and metal facade they hide behind when they falter?

But, you're right. Apple sells status--and well, if a bunch of stinking monkies can get together and throw their crap around to find a common ground and feel good about themselves, I guess they can. They've achieved status and status well, is only as good as your company. When your company is crap, well then, what is your status? (please do not construe company with company as in apple but rather company as in compatriots--or not, read as you wish).

Image is not everything I argue. I just wish others would see it as so. Substance is everything, image merely compliments it. Though, the Mythbusters did prove you can polish a "poop." Maybe Apple knew this far earlier and has been doing it for years?
