About This Comic: Non-Conformist
When did this happen? Back in the day you could wave your freak flag high when you were an Apple fan. Now, the non-conformist seems to buy anything but mainstream. Think different. Fight the power.
And come on – Mini-iPad? Never mind that there is documentation that the late Steve Jobs hated the idea and the company is no longer following his vision posthumously. Mark my words, we are in for a whole bunch of Maxi-iPad jokes and comics.
It’s just a phone, right? Except it is not. A smartphone choice is a fashion/personal statement. I love, love, love the Samsung spots with the poseurs queuing up in line (again) like lemmings. The campaign for the Samsung Galaxy SIII ranks among the funniest and most clever I’ve seen in my long, cranky life.
I could bore you with a bunch of minutiae and excuses like “I need to check my mobile web work on the platform the other half of the world uses“, but the real reason is that I am just tired of the stagnant iOS after all these years and want a change. We picked up my wife’s iPhone 5 the other night which partly inspired the timing of this comic, and after a day with it she confessed it is all “much ado about nothing”.
This strip is dedicated to ElDirty. You were ahead of your time on this matter.
