Fun Apple Quote

Monday, September 26th, 2011

I just read a fun quote on an unofficial Apple blog that I had to share:

From an upstart outsider to the most profitable cellphone manufacturer. From a PC also-ran to the laptop of the future. In less than two years, revitalizing an entire device category and disrupting just about every media business you can name. Not only becoming the world’s most valuable company, but seeing the stock continue to rise even after the exit of the company’s visionary founder.

For those of us who lived through the lean years of Apple, being around to witness all this is a bit strange. It’s as if we had been diligently preaching the benefits of a meat-free diet for years, only to wake up one morning and discover that everyone we knew had gone vegan overnight. Dealing with success is certainly better than the alternative, but some may mourn the passing of the special minority status we enjoyed as the Mac Elite. Now we have to figure out how to avoid saying “Yes, we told you so!” every five minutes.

I like the image of everyone I know going vegan overnight, that’s exactly what it feels like.

Check these out: “Photos from the opening of the Chicago Lincoln Park Apple Store“.

Here’s the best one:

It’s Apple’s newest “Significant Store”, and it’s on the site of a former gas station.
