jira writes “‘You may think you own your iPad or iPhone but in reality an invisible string links it back to Apple HQ’ writes John Naughton. He adds: ‘Umberto Eco once wrote a memorable essay arguing that the Apple Mac was a Catholic device, while the IBM PC was a Protestant one. His reasoning was that, like the Roman church, Apple offered a guaranteed route to salvation – the Apple Way – provided one stuck to it. PC users, on the other hand, had to take personal responsibility for working out their own routes to heaven.’”

    nope, doesn’t work that way. you can’t “work your own way to heaven” because then everyone could just kill each other, get away with it, and still “go to heaven”. So bad comparison there. If you ever compare the most legit way to “get to heaven”, Apple is more dead on. Notice all of Apple’s success? People aren’t stupid, they will naturally go for the better things in life.
