On The Big Picture, an allusion of how the Apple story could have made a nice gospel story:
As a long time Apple fanboy going back to my 1990 Mac Classic, I find this brilliant:
1. a creation myth highlighting the counter-cultural origin and emergence of the Apple Mac as a transformative moment;
2. a hero myth presenting the Mac and its founder Jobs as saving its users from the corporate domination of the PC world;
3. a satanic myth that presents Bill Gates as the enemy of Mac loyalists;and, finally,
4. a resurrection myth of Jobs returning to save the failing company…
This originally appeared on the Atlantic Journal.
Is it a wonder that Apple products have such a rabid following bordering on religious fervor, with customers buying and defending their products despite their flaws (read: Iphone 4)?
