Apple: My Journey to the Dark Side…

Search your feelings. You know this to be true….

The Apple Store in Columbia Mall, Maryland
I am team apple. I was a Microsoft/PC guy until 2009, mainly because I was broke, then I lost a book I was writing and an album I was working on (including the backup drive) due to a blue screen of death boot sector virus. This was perhaps my 4th Windows device to go belly up and it would be my last. It was an Acer laptop, for the record…..

Around December of 2009 I had windfall of sorts so I ordered my first MacBook, the white shiny one. I still have it. After that I bought the Apple Airport Express router and maybe a year later, after a frustrating time using my Blackberry for the internet, I stormed into Best Buy and purchased my first iPhone. I switched to AT&T that afternoon as well, leaving T-Mobile. 

Following that I bought an iMac to process my photos (the MacBook is old now) and most recently I bought an iPad mini, which I’m using to compose this elegant, well written blog entry. When I bought my iPad mini I needed to migrate all of my iPhone stuff over so I took a class right there in the Apple Store after I made the purchase. The pretty blonde across from me was buying an Apple Watch. It was pink, the watch and band, matching her skull cap and other winter accessories. 

“So do you have all the other apple stuff too? Laptops etc?” I asked. 

She wrinkled her nose and smirked. “Yep.” 

Her journey to the dark side was complete. 

I don’t think I’ll get the Apple Watch. Of course, I said I’d never get the iPad mini either. Goddamn micro-struggle is real yo…..

Exit.

  1. I was a Mac user a long time ago — so long ago the OS was still called System and it was on version 6. For pragmatic reasons I went Windows in about 1992 and haven’t been back.

    I just started a new job and most people there use Macs. I’m holding out. Gonna try to stick with my old Windows laptop for a while and see if I can make it work. Because I’m afraid that if I switch, I’ll get sucked back in, and I’ll have to upgrade everything at home. Not interested in spending that money!!
