    I feel sorry for him if that's his idea of a "vacation".

    Apple dweebs are sad and pathetic.

    "mac fanboy"? How do you know he is a mac fanboy? iphone, sure.

    Fanboys of all shapes, sizes and colours have no lives - the chosen product is their entire life.

    apple fanboys are annoying, why do they try to force them self in the console wars, its Nintendo, Microsoft, & Sony, they all do game consoles, apple has no game console buy there fanboys swear that the iPhone is.
    & they troll.

    i had a iphone, its nice as a phone with features, but we actually have game consoles like DS & 3DS is coming.
    all games are fun but im sure a game on actual game console will always be better than a game on a phone. no matter what phone that is.

    sonic 4 is going to iphone(i was hoping it would be DS or 3DS [​IMG] ) i can get the wii version tho.
    sonic colors is coming to wii & DS, also a sonic 3DS game is commgin so im ok.

    I've also noticed that when I play TF2, the Mac Users are really obnoxious with their earbuds.

    There's a documentary on Hulu called Macheads. Towards the end it goes on to explore how sad the userbase has gotten since the iProducts started coming out. This is no surprise to me.

    I hate Mac fanboys more than anyone, but this isn't that uncommon. In fact, I've never camped out for the launch of any product, but I'd sure love to do if a bunch of my friends were up for it.

    The difference from him, and an idiot in a Stormtrooper outfit camping for a movie, is he made it plain he is disabled, and thus is not actually throwing away valuable time.

    He made it clear it was just a light hearted gag notion he could actually afford to indulge.

    All fans are nuts, but he at least acknowledges this is possible mainly because he has nothing else he has to be attending to.

    You know what, people come in two types. Fucking boring people, and people willing to have some laughs.

    I am disabled too. I could almost do something as crazy. Although my disability would frown on camping out on a sidewalk.

    But I have nothing stopping me from right over the top anime cosplay.
    The only thing that has ever stopped me, was I just do NOT have the right body shape at all (I also don't like fat girls ignoring their limitations for the most part).

    A week camping outside and he still has to pay a sizeable sum for the product. This guy is crazy, but eh... so long as he is enjoying himself. [​IMG]

    You can do whatever you want that you consider fun, and somebody will be nearby to tell you you're an idiot for being happy.

    In my opinion, those are the sad ones, the people who get their kicks raining on other people's parades.

    Dear god. I can understand the night before, maybe even the day before but a week?!?!?! JESUS CHRIST!!!
    I'll be the first to admit I don't like Apple too much. The only product of theirs I show any interest in is the iPod Touch/iPhone as I love shiny touchscreens. iPods are too limited in terms of music formats and all Apple products are overpriced BUT I understand that some people like them enough to warrant £999 for a base Macbook (seriously?). This, however, takes it too far in my opinion. SEND IN THE MEN IN WHITE COATS I SAY!

    I do not like any Apple products at all due to their pricing, but I can kind of see the fun in this kind of thing. Doing stupid things like waiting a week just because you feel like it must be hilarious as hell for him. To others? Maybe not as much.

    I like how people reserve all judgement on a product based solely on its pricing. Happens with everything. If the guy wants to camp out for a week so what? He's not harming anyone, and a little outdoors is always good.

    Problem here is that there are many things comparable to a Macbook or iMac that are considerably cheaper. The Mac OS, while nice, never feels worth the premium to me.

    I wasn't talking specifically about the macbook or imac. Just people's attitudes towards products in general. I've seen people hate on the Kinect due to it's pricing, on the Move, on the 3DS... I guess it's only natural for some narrowminded people?
