Imagine There’s No Apple

January 22, 2008

This is from David Pogue, technology columnist at the New York Times, published January 12, 2008:

Imagine (sung to the tune of John Lennon’s “Imagine”)

Imagine there’s no Apple,
No products that begin with “i,”
No monthly iPod models,
No Apple stores to get you high.
Imagine all the people
Finding other things to do!

Imagine there’s no bloggers…
It isn’t hard to do!
No viruses or spyware,
No weekly Windows patches, too
Imagine all the people
Learning to get a life… 


You may say it’d be a nightmare
  Without Google, Mac or Dell
  We might have real conversations–
  But the world would be dull as hell!

Imagine no new cellphones;
Kiss console games goodbye.
No David Pogue or Mossberg
To tell us what to buy.
Imagine all the people
Getting some exercise!


You may say that I’m a loony
  But rest assured I’m almost done.
  I’m pretty sure it’ll never happen
  So we nerds can live as one!

    Pogue has a good sense of humor and I always appreciate his opinion. I would certainly be happier in a world without Microsoft, but not without Apple!
