It used to be that if you had an Apple product, you were in a select group on the outskirts of mainstream. With a firy passion, you bucked the idea of following the leader. You colored outside the lines. An Excel spreadsheet was for your dad and his friends. It’s no doubt that Apple’s introduced revolutionary products into the world, things like the iPod and the iPhone that are the benchmark of mobile connectivity. But just as Land Rover is produced for the masses and no longer for the fringes of offroad enthusiasts (don’t even get me started on that!), having an iPhone is like having a Facebook page. You have one, your teachers have one, your dad and his friends have one. No longer are you on the fringes. You are mainstream. And now you are not cool.
This is not a punch in the face, but yes Steve Jobs, you’ve just been Droided.
