I love APPLE products. old ones (1984 Macintosh) new ones (My iPhone 13 Pro Max) it doesnt matter. I love everything apple has ever made, including the Newton. This obsession is not new. As a Child, I loved everything Apple at my school. The Macintosh SE/30 that was used as a AppleTalk server for the IIGS network, the Macintosh II FX and Quadra 950 that were only for the "older kids" to do important stuff on like access the internet. When my parents bought a Gateway PC with Windows 95, I was disappointed to say the least. When I found a Quadra 700 at a local garage sale for $20, I couldn't stop smiling. My first Mac! Ever since that moment, I made it a point in my life that if there was a choice between something else and Apple, I would always do it the Apple way. even when I had no job and couldn't pay my rent, I held on to my iPhone. Anybody else here love apple that much?

android is not better. That "customizable" aspect comes at the cost of integration. Android doesn't come with a weather app, I have to pick one and download it. I don't want to research 5 different weather apps. I just want one that works. I like how iMessage tells me when someone has read a message. I like how with apple, you don't have to think. a majority of things are just done for you in a certain way and I LIKE THAT. I like not having to think or make choices. the best things in life are things that require zero effort

No, I don't really fetishize any particular variety of tech products (Apple, Android, Linux, Windows, etc) because they all have advantages and drawbacks and because even if there's stuff one likes about a brand emotional attachment to that brand shouldn't ever be a consideration when choosing a product.

I have an iphone that I use for its depth sensors, but getting files off it onto my pcs is such a pain that I don't even like using it for that.
Mac workstations are only becoming a reasonable investment now with the M1s, but software support is only slowly catching up and the M1 turned out to be not quite as powrrful as advertised, do it's still expensive.
I so see some very nice design concepts on apple products, and an awful lot of fluff.
Microsoft however is largely just plain stupid, but it saves me a lot of compatibility problems in the field I work in.
