Apple set to anger non-believers by closing stores for Steve Jobs memorial

19 October 2011

steve-jobsPeople like nothing more than moaning about Apple. All Apple buyers are sanctimonious, lifestyle idiots aren't they? Well, that's what slightly different sanctimonious lifestyle idiots tell anyone who'll listen.

And people are going to start complaining again when Apple closes its retail stores for several hours Wednesday so that employees can watch a webcast of a memorial service to celebrate the life of Steve Jobs.

Of course, this kind of behaviour will jar people who hate Apple and the lifestyle that goes with it.

What kind of sycophantic nonsense is this? etc etc

Not that the closing of a shop they'll never, ever go in will affect them in any way, shape or form.

Still, nice to pick fights with people based on what gadgets you use eh? It reminds us of the BetaMax/VHS riots of the '80s.

    What was he doing with his hand in this photo? I think he was rubbing his finger and thumb in a "money" gesture - thus indicating he's going to bleed his dry with his overpriced produce.

    It is what he is doing with his other hand that concerns me more.

    @Singhster "What was he doing with his hand in this photo?" He is clutching the remnants of your soul, you apple sucking lemmings (yes there is no bitterness from me for the friends I've lost to the dark side).

    He's holding your tiny, shrivelled balls.

    He's holiding up an exact replica of his face just like the BW in-depth reporters discovered last week. http://real-f.jp/index.html It's was a prototype - there are literally millions being made in China right now. Soon you won't be allowed to use an Apple product without wearing one thanks to high teckery face recongnition. Soon we will all be Steve. Just like he had planned out since 1984. The real meaning of "Think Different": The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now.

    Personally, I really respect a company that uses some of it vast wealth to pay respect to a man who made it what it is today. I love the 'Apple lifestyle' tbh and think this is another good indication that it's not going to change with Tim Cook

    Oh dear. Its going to be the worlds biggest cluster wank, all making one big Steve Jobs soggy biscuit, which Mof is going to dunk into his morning tea. Imagine the stench.

    Why only several hours? I reckon they should shut them for at least a month in respect for Steve Jobs. They could even sell tickets to iphone users to drop in and watch the video.

    Is this nonsense or something more....no other company I can remember has ever allowed all to reflect on someone that has affected something that all we do. From the first computer, to phone , even the over priced dominate tablet. Yes apple and microsoft are ripping the planet apart by destorying its rivals. But you find this in all types of business...Close the shop or not , its great advertising either way ....
