apple iBrainwash
show user profile  Error404
a few folks in the other room were watching the apple iwatch release, and it was loud enough that I could hear.

Man, apple is pushing that thing real hard. I feel like apple is trying to brain wash people, haha! When I hear them talking about it, I just feel like it's a slimy sales person trying to sell me something pointless. I guess taking the phone out of your pocket is to much work now days?

Or maybe I don't get it because I don't have any apple stuff.

What is the MaxForums' opinion of the iwatch & stuff? (and please state if you have apple stuff, or not)

Discuss.

I have a flip phone that doesn't have a camera on it.

Consumer electronics are for consuming. I'd rather focus on creating (and the Hotchkiss : )


Edit: Actually I just bought a used Ipod for music at the gym and a consumer level camera so I was lying a little bit now that I think of it. Still mean what I say though.

I'm replying while using the Maxforums iPhone app. I thought everyone was using the Maxforums app.

Yep, feel like there's some hidden frequency they're using that turns ordinary citizens into dumb fuckwits who can't walk without staring at their phones, or drive, or catch an elevator, or hang a shit. Actually, surprised there isn't the "hang a shit selfie" yet, hell, we've already got the "I just had sex selfie," seems like the next logical step.

I saw a vid posted (think I reposted on Facebook) that shows if you check out the "app options/settings" for most downloaded applications it states that they can and will have access to your messages, voice recordings and will be able to turn on your camera at any time they choose without your knowledge or consent. 1984 shit right there.

I don't leave home with my 2G phone (unless I'm going to pick up digits). Pat-on-back-and-all. No brain cancer for me.

[edit] Oh yeah, don't have apple "stuff" (you asked us to clarify).

Well, thanks for reminding me of how much I want a cigar and scotch right now.

Your typical Apple user is as brainwashed as they get. They are like a cult or a religeon and anything apple is their dogma. It's disgusting.
And it's not that I don't like their tech, IPad is still the best tablet on the market, the IPhone is top notch, I'm sure the rest of their stuff is excellent too, but man, their userbase, dumbass brainwahsed fucks 99% of them.

Yeah the whole thing is really bloody annoying.. Agreed with Seth, good products for sure, but the whole marketing ethos goes way beyond the realms of what is acceptable in my opinion. If anything it just goes to show how much people rely on products and consumerism these days..

I had an iPhone, loved it... tried out a HTC, hated it, went back to iPhone, still love it.

Brainwashed or not, what's the difference, I'm happy with it so don't see the problem.

Some people always seem to hate the market leader, that's what I don't understand, why hate on it? Just don't buy one.

The problem is the devices themselves (apple, Samsung, whatever).

Have you tried to pick a chick up lately? You literally have to grab the fucking phone from her hand before she'll look at you. Have you tried walking down the footpath lately? You literally have to elbow people in the head to walk in a straight line since they're looking at their fucking phones. Have you tried to order something at a fast food joint lately? You get the point.

I hate all those devices.

I thought the debate was apple vs other...

Those issues with phones in general bug me too, my girlfriend is constantly looking at her phone, we will try and watch a film or a TV show and I see she's getting distracted by her phone constantly, I want to watch it together.
