It’s crazy how much people love Apple products!
Remember when we were kids, the only time your parents would replace your phone would be if you needed a cordless or one of them broke? Now people want the new version just for the status feeling it gives them and to make them feel good.
I have no problem with it. If you want to buy something just because it has a shiny new package, go for it.
Apple is pretty rad though, but this notion of “We Must Have” is pretty ridiculous.
A lot of DJs use Apple laptops to make music and a lot of those said DJs or producers like to make remixes of someone else’s original song. Remixes are everywhere!
Usually someone thinks they can do something better than the original version, or they take several ideas from different places put them all together in a mashup version.
Did you ever think that’s exactly what the must-have iPhone you have in your hand is, a remix?
Maybe Apple isn’t the innovator you think it is, but just a simple DJ/producer who sees other people’s ideas and figures out a way to package it all in one.
There’s plenty more where that came from! Take a break with more of Surfer Stephen’s favorite viral videos below:
