My dad told me to never argue with a person who buys ink by the barrel. I finally listened.
Today I tell my kids not to aggravate anyone with a computer who is well versed in social media — especially if that person is a mac fan.
Mac people are part of a cult-ure (yes, that spelling is intentional). They believe in the company and the products, and they’re fiercely protective of all things mac. So it should not surprise anyone that as soon as Motorola came out with their Droid TV spots that focused on what they thought were the iPhone’s weaknesses, mac fanatics would respond — and the response would go viral.
Here’s the iDon’t TV spot from Motorola for their Droid phone due out in November, 09 and then below that is a couple of responses from the mac world. Note that I wrote the Droid won’t be out until November — that means these iPhone fans have mounted a response without ever even getting their hands on the Droid.
At least now they aren’t wasting a lot of ink fighting. Just bandwidth.
