A year ago, if you would’ve told me that I would be the owner of everything that is Apple, I probably would have laughed. I was one of those delusional people that was anti Apple. Not because I didn’t like their products (I had never used them and thus, didn’t have an opinion of them one way or another on their usability), but it was the so-called “status” that came along with being a user that I loathed. Never one to be a bandwagon person or an elitist, I saw the iPhone and all of it’s co-products a sign of elitism. Like, “hey, look at me! I have an iPhone! Aren’t I so special? So trendy? So on the verge?” Yeah. That was how I felt about iPhones, iPads, and the like.
But like the bad boy in school that you don’t like but end up getting to know during a day long detention that both of you are forced to undergo (does this sound like a popular 80’s movie here?), I fell for Apple. First by buying a MacBook and then by getting an iPhone. And now, thanks to an early Mother’s Day gift from my brood, I now have an iPad 3.
I got that whole Apple trifecta swag thing on. I am oozing with it!
I have had a lot of tablets in my day. I am an owner of both the Motorola Xoom and Sony S Tablet, both run on the Android operating system. And while they are great devices, the iPad 3 is a flagship tablet. Using it is amazing. I have fallen in love with it upon first use, and I am sure it gets better from here.
And despite the supposed status symbol of having an Apple anything, comes along with the fact (yes fact) that it is a superior product to it’s competition. They make a damn good product and I can’t ignore that just because the hater in me wants to. SO if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!
What’s the moral of this story? Going against the grain to just go against the grain is stupid because you could really be missing out on a good thing. I’ve changed my evil ways. And it’s Apple here on out.
I guess I am a complete sellout. LOL.
