Davao Mac User

I, fetish.

It’s just funny the things people do when they get their hands on an Apple product. Just like what Pete Mortensen of Wired News writes,

“Legions of Mac users take pictures. Apple users have a particular fascination with online photo galleries of other users unwrapping the latest company products, often with a smiling model performing the geek striptease one USB cable at a time.”


Who does such things anyway?

Whoops.

Ehem.

He goes on to add that some Apple pack rats use Apple product boxes as decorations in their shelves and one went further by displaying his boxes with Ikea lamps as backlights. Some take pictures of the process of opening their Macs or iPods (EHEM!) and then post them in the internet as a gallery. One such gallery remains popular two years after it was posted.

For some, the experience starts when you have held the machine and turned it on. But for Apple fans, the experience starts the very minute you look at the box.
