back to article Apple-obsessed geeks launch fanboi dating site

Here's some bright news for those of you who are so hooked on the divine manifestations of the Church of Jobs that you can't attract a member of the opposite sex: a dating site exclusively for fanbois and gals which reckons that it's "time to share the love". Yes indeedy, welcome to Cupidtino, breathlessly described by its …

Well...

I think you'd be surprised the number of "laydees" who love Job's kit! Of course they'd have more interesting things to do that hang around on dating websites, so yeah OK point taken!

My wife is a HUGE Apple fan girl after I gave her an iBook several years ago. She is more of an evangelist than I am now!

Oh God...

I'm crying real tears here for the gene pool of human race. My sole consolation is that the ratio of men: women is proportional to the number of police officers needed to arrest a Gizmodo journalist.

Turtleneck?

I've always been told it's a useless bit of skin, hence some remove it out of medical necessity or religious doctrine...

However, I would imagine an Apple dating site would appreciate form over function.

*(although it should be said, whilst Apple PRODUCTS are generally good-looking, I've never met an Apple USER who could be described as aesthetically-pleasing)

People who are right a lot seem smug if you have made the wrong (cough, Windoze) choices in your life. Just saying...

If the users are anything like Apple...

Everyone will look great, but require that you spend twice as much on gifts and dates as anyone else. They'd also not allow you to have any friends that aren't members of the site.

Also if your relationship ever had a problem, you'd never be able to fix it yourself - and instead would have to replace the whole relationship.

Apple's idea of sharing...

I did love this line:

"Cupidtino will launch in June 2010 exclusively on Apple platforms – Safari, iPhone and iPad apps. It’s time to share the love."

Ugh.

How about using some of those amazing design skills and aesthetic taste which Apple fanboys are so fond of claiming they have?

Or does Safari "magically" make light-grey text on a white background readable?

Wow, talk about a niche audience. I suppose they are freaks and it's good that they can find each other this way.

As much as I love Apple, I don't profess blind allegience. I will certainly criticise them and am very much aware that we can look like twats to outsiders.

Everybody knows Apple is immune to viruses. Or is it they just can't figure how to "plug in" since a typical Hoo-Haa has no magnets embedded.

MacHeads film quote

"I have never knowingly slept with a Windows user OK! That would simply not happen!"

I own Macs' and it's nice kit, but f**k me there are some fecking freaks out there and Apple kit seems to attract more than it's fair share!

Listen fanbois, IT"S ONLY A TOOL. APPLE KIT IS NOT A LIFESTYLE CHOICE!

It could work...

I'm in a mixed marriage - my wife is a Mac person; I'm a PC person. And she's a Catholic and I'm Jewish.

Luckily we're both cat people, so it's worked out OK. That said, right now she's stuck with a ThinkPad, since her 2004-vintage iBook had a motherboard die. I replaced it with another one of the same age; its motherboard died a day later. That said, she -was- using a Toshiba laptop of mine, until *IT* died, too. Power brick.

The funny thing is that when I met her, her soon-to-be-ex boyfriend was a hardcore Mac guy, and being a 19-year-old in a... competitive environment, I humiliated him for it around our friends at any opportunity. And we know how -that- ended. VICTORY!

I'm far less antagonistic toward mac users since OSX; it's not a bad OS and finally lets Mac users get under the hood if they want. To be ragged on for having the inferior technical platform when Mac users still had no pre-emptive multitasking and had to set memory usage manually per-application was a bit rich, but aside from price there isn't much to choose from the hardware and OS themselves now.

Steve Jobs' attitude and the smug marketing are another matter - but my wife likes Macs for the platform, not for the hype. Amazing, eh?

oh there will be "women"

especially of the type that expect their marks...errr..potential mates to have a certain amount of easily disposable income and are more concerned with appearance than output.

And yes I own a 3GS. So I can join up, get gold-digging bimbos who then get mad when they find i don't have the cash they expect to siphon? :P

This site is going to quickly become a gay parade, but thats what the creator intended didnt they? considering most fanboi's are gay, the only separating factor being some still hide it...
