iPhone people shave their heads?

I can't help it, but have you noticed that Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, and the new marketing guy (an asian guy you see in the iPad Mini video on Apple.com) all have SHAVED heads?

Is there like an internal culture of the "bald" group against others? Perhaps in the future, the iPad Mini and maybe iPhone people will all shave their heads. Could people who ascribe to Ive or is under his influence shave their heads out of a show of support?

So currently we have Design, Engineering, and Marketing so far.

In the news we heard that Mansfield was gonna quit (but Cook talked him out of it). Then we heard Ive wanted to move back to England (but was stopped by Jobs). Then the head of current NEST, Tony Fadell (who quit Apple because of Forstall). Then finally we heard Forstall got fired (he doesn't have a shaved head). When he got fired Fadell (oddly just recently got a shaved head) then went on the news and said Forstall deserved what he got.

Just some after thoughts. It would be interesting if there is some sort of shaved versus non-shaved culture at Apple started by Ive.

It's probably more down to the fact they are put under so much pressure, their hair has all fallen out. Failing that, they might be aliens operating for the Illuminati, so bald head is to be expected.

Was reading the title, and was like "WTF is this?"

Your just generalizing, Vinegartasters. But given that you've come up with so many controversial threads in the past, I forgive you.

Btw, Tim Cook still has hair, so should he get fired as well? O.O

It's because they're getting old and generally older men have less hair? I know people will iPhones that have dreads and women usually have long hair.
Not only is this a stupid thread, it's a terrible generalization.
Also what's the point of that link? It just shows a bunch of outdated information about iOS devices that nobody cares about (only goes up to 4S and iPod Touch 4)

Yes, it is true. They also shave their publes.

Shaved heads I can live with, but if they all started growing goatees then I might have to consider leaving AppleWorld.

8/10 iPhone owners are technologically ignorant and at least 0% of them care.

I'm pretty sure it's because they're balding, and well, just shaving it looks a lot better than trying a combover. When I lost my hair (at 25), when it got to a point where it looked like I was trying to hide it, I took it all off. Looks cleaner and better and less 'old man'. I don't go to bare skin, just buzzed with no guard, so I have a little growth showing.

Amen brother. Right with you!

Embracing it looks far more attractive than the horseshoe of hair or combover.

Yes, only Colonel Sanders and Satan look good with a goatee.

Based on 3 people? Consider the number of Apple employees and 3 is an insignificant number.
