Those fancy pants iPhone owners, they fix their phones

Look, it’s OK if you have enough money to buy an iPhone. But for God’s sake, don’t get it fixed.

In a blog post reposted at The Next Web, Zander Nethercutt says “iPhones are fragile — and so are their owners.”


As it has become clear just how luxurious life within the Apple ecosystem tends to be, so too has it become clear why Apple power users — often dubbed “sheep” — tend to behave in the ways that they do.

Who calls them sheep? People do. That’s all we need to know.

They are the definition of people who pay premiums at every turn…

And straw men are the definition of intentionally misrepresenting something because it’s easier to defeat than a real argument.

Nethercutt admits that the Apple user experience is quite nice, but believes people buy into it “more so because the person you see yourself as within that ecosystem reflects the person you aspire to eventually become.”

Ah, so, I eventually want to become an iPhone owner, so I buy an iPhone.

Well, that’s certainly straightforward. The Macalope thought it would be a little more complex than that.
