Sometimes it’s hard to believe that celebrities are just like us - usually most of them have what we don’t. But when it comes to Apple, there was never a difference…

Apple lays out the red carpet only for itself,but a company built on money gouging principles could surely take advantage of desperate cash loaded celebs

Well, I wouldn't say celebs are EXACTLY the same. I never got to call up a CEO to ask for a free device, for instance.

Apple is a religion and great part of its phenomena could only be explained by this presumption. It goes way beyond classic late-capitalism consumersim and fetishes of objects of desire. It's based on a prophecy, a meta-language of signs that constitue our culture - the embodiement of our system of values, and opposing forces are very strong, with excesive energy just like in religious wars. Of course, its does not manifest itself as a tradiotional religion, because of completely different paradigm - but the mechanism is the same - we worship it and it's in everything, we want it and we don't know why.
The "Apple Conspiracy" project is focused on sarcastic remarks on this problem. There is no conspiracy, and that's a conspracy ((c) Southpark)

That has to be untrue in some cases cause my brother goes to a private school with the daughter of yolanda adams the gospel singer and her daughter was playing with the original ipad i saw before they had the official show announcing it. I was pissed since she was 8 and didnt even know how to use it.

its always best to keep quiet about your products until the time to announce them... we as people tend to make things less valuable once we open our mouths.
Its best for them to release that info on their own terms first then deal with the love&hate afterwards.

love it or hate it, but you can't ignore it.

Its actually refreshing to see that celebrities are not getting everything they want firsthand because they can sing or act. There are thousands of people who can do what actors and singers can do they just choose not to pursue that path in life. I have more respect for the actors who are modest and choose not to make a news story out of everytime they party or potty. They are people and they forget that because they make millions.

Have to say its pretty respectful that Celebs have to wait too, but that being said, still hate the iCult action.

Celebrities and other VIPs don't get privileged because that's actually one the main strategies in Apple. They are playing in the position of deity by conistency: there shall be no other gods among them, everyone is the same, Apple is the only God.

So in other words, self-entitled overpaid celebrities and athletes wanted something special, and they didn't get it, as they rightly deserve. Finally something good about apple, I guess....
