    Tonight I drank much and told friends I haven't seen from grade school that I work for Apple in Cupertino designing user interfaces for the 'new Mac OS'. Each and every one believed me. The fact that I was wearing an "Authorized Apple Reseller" polo shirt helped things along.

    Any other stories?

    I told Apple that things wouldn't get weird between us and that I'd call her again.

    Well that was odd, why would you do that? :confused:

    I don't really lie much, I really suck at it. The closest "Apple lie" I guess is telling my parents that I'm not going to get them a Mini for Christmas this year. (They found out that is what I was planning and are giving me the whole "don't you dare spend that kind of money!" crap) But I am!! Oh yes, I'm a devious one...:cool:

    Probably the biggest Apple-related lie I've ever told was telling Finance that we absolutely needed new Macs (G5s) and peripherals, and that the time where we couldn't get any meaningful work done was soon approaching... you can hardly blame me, right? :D

    Closely on its heels, telling my team-members that I wasn't at all upset by my broken iPod. Brushed it off with a bitter-sweet smile while inwardly moping about it... :(

    When my parents PC kinda blew up (they turned it on and heard a loud pop and smelled something burning) I told them they needed a new computer, when all their PC needed was probably a new motherboard. So we went to the Apple Store later that day and they got a mini :D Lie? Yeah, probably, since a mobo probably was all that was needed, but I was sick of troubleshooting windows and it's spyware and other problems

    I tried to tell my GF that the Power Mac G5 and 2 20" ACDs that turned up on my desk at home one day had been there the whole time we had lived together.

    Over the past few years, I have told newbies at this board......especially potential switchers who had absolutely no idea about Macs......that a G4 Mac felt as fast as a WinPC Pentium 4.

    I'm waiting until new Quad Intel Desktops come out and then telling my work IT group that we need to replace our Dual G4s & G5s with them - oh yeah - and upgrade to Intel-optimized Adobe CS3! Must have power.

    Ummm... using Remote Desktop for a prank on my brother. He comes up to me all freaked out becuase he said "I thought macs were immune to spyware...someome was controling my computer and typing weird things..." I said yah man, you better steer clear of those highly offensive photographic websites and p2p programs (He was hogging my bandwidth :mad: )

    He only checks email and messenges now ahahahahahahaha

    Edit: i have poor gramer :)

    I already have an amazingly awesome job, so I tend not to lie to my friends about what I do. ;)

    Worst Apple lie? Can't think of one.

    I convinced my ex girlfriend that my new 17" Powerbook (at the time) was the exact same 15" PB I'd had for 18 months, except lately I'd been pulling out the extendable speakers. :rolleyes:

    I told myself that 512MB RAM was enough to run Tiger, iMovie, Garageband, Safari, Mail, about 20 widgets, iCal, Adium, iTunes, and Word on my PB1.25 without any unreasonable lag.

    The fool still believes me. :D
