    I'm of course a HUGE apple person. Love their products and stand behind what they do 100% . I recently found these online and was thinking about ordering them, but I just wanna ask is it too much to do? I work retail and my name on my tag is "idave" and i'm pretty much the "apple guy" at work. we all know a little about apple but when it comes to trouble shooting and advance stuff its always me they ask or fixing iphones.

    Is this a yes or no?

    I would definitely judge someone wearing those earrings in a negative way.

    I love Apple as much as the next guy, but yes, you are going too far.

    I'm the resident Mac guy in my department (and I'm in computing, so there's a lot of hate, lol) and if I saw someone with those earrings I would not hesitate to punch them in the scrotum.

    HOWEVER, given what I said, I also totally respect people doing what they want. I'm a 21 year old dude, and every now and then I wear a star earring I got when I was 10, just for the memories.

    If you like these earrings, you should get them!

    I do like em. The tear drop not so much , but the apple is pretty sweet. Its no HUGE or anything. i'm just tired of wearing the same ole earings ( basic fake diamond looking things) I'm not trying to be a "player" or anything like that. So I thought these were pretty cool. But I can see where it goes a little overboard. Now if I worked for Apple itself. maybe I would do it a little more.

    Honestly, dude, I'd wear two of those Apples. It's the tear that ruffles my feathers. I think if you like Apple you should get two Apples.

    ...then tell me where you got them :D

    EXACTLY, its the tear that is going overboard . Don't get me wrong I looked like this ----> :( when I heard Jobs passed away. Hell I even have a photo of him next to my "apple nightlight" but an earing thats a tear is a little crazy lol Just saying

    I'd say that's a step too far into ridiculously tacky, yes. It may actually be a step up from fake diamonds though. Say no to bling.

    It's not just the tear drop that's going to far...

    The tear drop is weird. But I like the apples. They're pretty neat :)

    I think it's a step too far to stand 100% behind Apple and what they do.

    If they were cufflinks they'd be pretty cool. It'd be better if they matched though.
