I know the reason why Apple is not cool anymore and actually some of the readers have already stated it.
So I was never a fan of Apple. Been using PCs and windows for pretty much all my life. There was actually a point in my life when I said, I’ll never use Apple products. Too hipster. I don’t want to be “one of those” ppl.
Fast-forward to 2012 and I bought an iPad! An iPad mini to be exact because while I thought the iPad was interesting, it was just way too big and I was right because the mini was the perfect size to hold while in bed.
I must say, I was blown away by the mini and this is a Windows guy for life, been in technology for life so being blown away is not something that happens often with me and technology. I just cannot believe how something so thin can be so practical and the touch screen was just revolutionary compared to the mouse. So I tried other tablets to see what they were about and there was just no comparison. The iPad was simply lighter, thinner, faster, and easier to use.
And sure enough, other ppl thought so too. You remembered those ads on the classified section that says “Wanted: someone to teach me how to use my PC”? You don’t see too much of those anymore. Five year olds, ninety year olds — anybody can use the iPad. Jobs has basically leveled the playing field and anybody can use a computer with ease now.
So you ask why Apple is not cool anymore? Well, how cool is your mom using your iPad? Or gramps? Or little Charlie? Maybe even, Rover? Actually, how cool is moi, a Windows person, using an iPad? How cool is that?
Basically, Apple is the new Microsoft.
