    Hello. My name is Tom and I'm an Appleholic. :crywave:

    Seriously. Since there's so many of us that are Apple fans, I thought we might like to have our own "home" thread to where we can talk Apple stuff. Product reviews, questions, help, or just conversation.

    So, go ahead. Join in if you'd like. If it works out and everybody likes it, we'll keep it and maybe sticky it. If, on the other hand, you'd rather keep everything as discrete threads, that's ok too. Just let me know.

    Tom :)macwave:... maybe I need to make us name badges? :unsure:)

    i think that's a good idea so we don't bore the non apple enthusiasts to death with lots of threads!

    Hi Dan!

    Don't think even a 12 step program would work for me. :unsure:
    After all, one of my biggest goals is to someday attend the "Big Nerd Ranch" so I'm probably hopeless. :geekon:

    Tom :)macwave:... wheee... yet another way to spend money!)

    I'm not I could give it up anytime I want! I could! honest! I

    ok :( I'm Keith and I'm an Appleholic

    current inventory
    2* mac pros
    2* 27" imacs
    2* macbook airs 13" (different generations)
    2* macbook pro 15s (different generations)

    ipad1,2 and 3

    every ipod revision theyve made
    every iphone revision they've made

    apple tv on every tv in the house

    This doesn't include the ones I've given away to family members etc.

    I'm now eagerly awaiting the 15" macbook pro-air (whatever it's going to be called)

    I've done the wait outside the apple store for hours in a queue for the latest gadget thing, I've spent all night trying to order online from the apple store and I've longed to attend a WWDConference ;( though that never looks likely to happen (Tom, if you or I win the lottery, I'm up for a pact that we'll meet there that very year ;-)

    Actually, the only reason I haven't is strictly one of cost. Even though it's in the local area, you really need to go stay there to get the full learning impact. And while it's not overwhelmingly expensive, it isn't cheap either. And my DW has other plans for that money. However, I haven't given up. If I can get a few things to work out, I may be able to manage it.

    Sooner rather than later hopefully. :fingers:

    Tom :)macwave:... suscribe to their weblog. Some really interesting bits in there.)

    :wave: I wan to join!

    I only have an iMac, but I am a true convert.

    When I can upgrade my phone next year, I'm going for the iPhone.

    And well, I'm waiting to see what's offered in June! There could be an iPad or apple laptop in my future.

    Oh, and I recently upgraded by older nano to the new 6th generation one.

    Umm.. :unsure: hello.

    My name is Josh, and I've been an Apple Addict for over 5 years now.

    Firstly it started off just with the iMac, but before I knew it I had an iPod touch, an iPod Nano, a Macbook, an iPhone, an apple TV, an iPad... the list just goes on and on.

    I've managed to cut back a bit and I now just have the macbook, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, with 1000s of iPods lying about the house.

    Hi my name is Johnie and I am an Apple addict :wave:

    I am on my 3rd iPhone.

    I am currently typing this on my Macbook Pro.

    I can't seem to keep an iPad though :unsure:


    OH! Apple products are doing amazing things in vocational rehab! We are using iPhone and the iTouch for clients to be able to keep and maintain job duties. We just tried out an iPad for a client who is a professional and needed help with case notes, etc to keep his job. I just got permission to purchase one for him. There are some awesome apps to help with anger, depression, anxiety, etc.

    Oh and should I admit that I had NO idea why everything was set to Cupertino until Steve Jobs died? Probably not. Are you going to take my membership away?

    Of course not. You're still one of us. :yes:

    However, I can't conceive of how you could have missed the references to Cupertino. :unsure:

    Tom :)macwave:... It is Nivana after all. :worship:)
