Re: Just like Apple

"Our programmers, engineers, and mathematicians are not ignorant sheeple who blindly pay a so-called idiot tax because they are too stupid to do otherwise; nor does anyone in this building (AFAIK) care about status symbols. "

Maybe for your firm, but not ever firms.

Being programmers, engineers, and mathematicians only represent their knowledge, it doesn't separate whether or not they are sheeples.

I know a lot of people in those classes and higher who blindly pay for it for the status symbols. And even more people pay for it due to 'friends recommended'. But I also know some iPhone owners (about 10%) who pay for it for their essential need. To separate those iPhone owners, all you need to ask is 'why not other smartphones?'. If they gave you a technical reason, they are not sheeples.
