One for the Mac haters: Mac users are more open minded and liberal than the rest of the population, but they’re less modest and have a bit of a superiority complex. So says Mindset Media, via The Inquirer.

    or at least, sells to people who think they’re smart. I very much doubt you’ll hear “because I’m thick as pigshit” as justification for buying a MacBook air.

    It’s been interesting to read the reaction to the Air on various mac blogs. To me, it’s a computer. Quite a nice one. Expensive, though. But some bloggers are tying themselves in knots trying not to criticise anything about it – so for example there’s an almost apologetic tone when people say there’s no Ethernet port. I can’t think offhand of any other global corporation that gets that kind of loyalty.

    Not global, but how about the NHS?

    I don’t think I have ever used the Ethernet port on my PowerBook, and there is a USB one available for when you need it. But it’s clearly not a dual-role machine: you would need a desktop as well.

    My criticism is that it doesn’t have built-in 3G.

    true, but it’s not for-profit.

    Agree 100% on 3g though. Gruber’s written a lot this week about iPhone-style seamless connectivity, and it’s such a sensible idea. Networks and lock-ins would be the spanner in the works, though.
