    All I like to do during TV shows/ Movies is point out if a character is using a Mac, or point out who has an iPhone/iPod while we're walking/driving around. But now I'm annoying them with talking about how it's "my time' to get an iPhone and reciting the specs of the 3G S.

    They think I have a big problem, but I think I'm alright.. What do you think? Have your friends ever gotten sick of your endless Apple talk?

    I think that would be annoying too.

    "Hey, look! They're using a Mac/iPhone"

    "Wonderful, never seen that before :rolleyes:, now shut up get out of my house."

    No because I don't care enough to notice half the time. I also try to have more things to talk about than apple's stuff, because that would be annoying.

    Fanboyism is not an appealing trait. Get out more. :)


    (Says the girl with frickin tons of posts on macrumors, but probably 2% of them are about apple. :p )

    I'm a person with a one track mind, and when I want something, it's always on my mind.. If only I was like this toward school work, then I'd be a genius.

    Hehe, well I can certainly understand that.

    I would try to curb the geeky apple loving stuff though, seriously. The vast majority of people out there really won't get it. And if you can't stop yourself from mentioning it, mention it fast and move on. ;)

    You're lucky you're not my friend. I probably would have shot you by now, and buried your body someplace where not even the worms could find you.

    I mean seriously. Apple products are everwhere. Who cares when you see one on TV? I certainly don't, and obviously your friends don't either.

    So save yourself, and shut the fook up about it. Before one of them takes an axe to your skull.

    It's one thing to point them out but to recite the specs, you have to drop that :p.

    People with lots of interests have a lot of interesting things to talk about.


    You, you must be a boring person. Get some hobbies or interests.

    Then I would suggest that you:
    • Study more.
    • Ditch the Apple talk.
    • Recognize PCs in use.
    • Get out more.
    • Learn a new hobby.

    Most folks can only take so much fanboy talk regardless of the subject be it computers, guns, cars, etc.

    Suggest that you learn to multi-track. Life will be more fun.

    You don't say:eek: lol

    Do you have any other hobby? I swim, surf and workout :D and I talk about sports 24/7 :p (well beats talking about apple 24/7, more interesting debates for a start).

    What you have to remember is that Apple is a business, not your best friend.
    Aside from it being the lamest conversation topic ever, most people your age (and in general) don't care about a large multinational corporation.

    Find a hobby. Take up a sport/or following one. Socialise and go out more.
    The macs you seen on tv are merely props, I'm sure your friends would prefer if you talked about what your supposed to be watching.

    Do you randomly yell "MOOF!"?

    I'd like to suggest you do what you can ti hide your Macishness. Be very complimentary about PC's (as much as possible, don't be disgusting), then just keep working with your Macs.

    Good 'ol reverse psychology.

    Veeeery nice. Oh, hey, you blow up anything in your back yard lately?

    Or even know them...

    You know you're a geek when you know the specs of the iPhone 3G S and recite them to your friends. :p

    Yes, yes you should. There is nothing more madding then a fanboy who won't stop talking.

    To add, a smart geek is when you know them, but don't state them unless someone asks. And then only sparingly.
