IS APPLE STILL COOL, EVEN IF IT IS MAINSTREAM?*

Yes, but that will decrease in time. I think its getting to a stage where it’s got to move things on quite considerably. Most people have an iPhone, but the next thing that someone sees across a table and says, ‘wow, what’s that?’ will be the cool thing.

I’ve got a BlackBerry because I like BBM, but I would go for an iPhone next time because it’s faster with the internet. Apple is cool, but more because of their computers – that’s where you see what they’re really worth. They’re a lot easier to use than a PC.

I have an iPad, but not an iPhone. I’m not so geeky. There will be a point when another company will come up with cooler products. But I did buy my wife an iPad because they’re cool. I guess they’re as sexy as you can get for IT products.
