Just a quick poll:

Are you a Mac or Apple Head? I am an Apple head, love the company, love the product, but I do know people who dislike apple but still love the computer.

Apple Head - Somebody who loves the Company, Steve and everything Apple. (for instance me :))

Mac Head - Somebody who love the Mac, and doesn't care about the company as long as they make macs etc... (ie. A graphic designer who uses macs at work for design)

Ok, maybe they are both Apple/Macs heads but the pictures rule :)

yeah, Schumi rules :) I love Apple more that anything else during keynotes and on the build up and down, during F1 races I love Ferrari and Schumacher more that any else :)

Currently: Apple 90% Ferrari 10%

Apple Heads and Mac Heads but Mac Heads are not Apple Heads.

I wouldn't say I class u as a **** head, I don't class people I don't know well, (aside from people with the word "Cyrus" and "GO" in there names)

Hey mac15, I didn't noticed earlier but well done on the 1000 posts, you are now 11th in the standings (http://www.macrumors.com/forums/memberlist.php3?s=&what=topposters&perpage=11)

We look upon 1000+ as a real high number of posts (and it is) but when u look at posts on other sites (like ambrosiasw.com) forums they can have like over 10000, anyway, we rock.

Given the one statement above that the Apple Head set contains the Mac Head Set, I'd have to go with Apple Head, that way I can be both.

I'd consider myself mostly an apple-head. For me it comes down to "why do i buy macs?". Sure, the computers a stylish, sleek.... all the things we love about the hardware. But then sony also makes some pretty sleek h/w, so why don't i buy them? Because they're not made by a certain co. by the name of 'apple' (plus they happen to have as os with M$ in it. ewwww). I love the whole 'think different' ethos.

Its kind of hard to hate the company that makes your mac, but if you live day to day with the frustration thinking that your machine could be so much better... well, not for me.

You mean Father Ted (http://www.father-ted.co.uk)?

They've got a great song about a dead horse (http://www.father-ted.co.uk/download/MLHold.mp3). :D :D

I'd have to say I am an Apple Head... I like most of what Apple is doing (can't like everything). Being a tech, I also have to fix the systems that Apple produces. I am looking forward to getting my hands on new towers after MWNY (I hope they come out with something über-cool).

I think the word "interesting" is a major understatement...

Apple, as a company, could easily be considered one of the most innovative/intriguing companies ever...with a track record that would make most analysts cringe...he he he ;)

They've had a huge impact in the design of all the computers you see today, not to mention almost every aspect of industrial and product designn in general.

They are an innovator, revolutionary and geek all wrapped up in one!

do u think there will ever come a day when they become a completely self-contained company making every bit of their hardware as well as their iTools lineup?

Not any time soon. This also was debated a while ago, would Apple buy Motorola, etc. That's what's going to need to happen, but with the current state of Apple, it could only be a future possibility, with no definite plans right now.

I figured as much...

they are having trouble enough trying to get faster processors out as it is...

and that's without the task of taking on the computer industry as a whole...
