I'm curious about this. I currently own a 13" rMBP, an iPad Mini, and an iPhone 5. The iP5 everyday breaks the record for the longest span of time I've ever owned a single phone. Rewind, 2005, using a semi-transparent colored Mac for a graphic design class in high school. I hated it, despised it, and everything Apple because it wasn't Windows and didn't have right click. A few years ago though iPhone were the most popular smartphone, I hated that. I was switching between Blackberry's and Android almost monthly because I couldn't find what was right for me. Then a man I've always heard is one of the greatest innovators of our time, Steve Jobs, passed away. I thought to myself, I consider myself a techie, Jobs was considered a great innovator, the iPhone is insanely popular, I suppose I have to try it out even though I'm going to hate it because it's Apple and I hate everything Apple. Well you already know how that turned out. Later this year I also plan on purchasing the iPhone 6 and second gen iPad Air. So Steve Jobs' passing was the catalyst for me to try Apple products again, give them a fair shake, and now they are products of choice for my life and what I want and need to do with my technology. So what made you decide to try an Apple product?
