Every time Apple launches a new product, some of the users of the “other” products will go, “Ha! Mine had this years ago. It doesn’t have that? Mine has.”
These statements remind of: “I’m always nice to her. I give her everything she needs. Never upset her. Why does she always go for the bad boy?”
On a more biblical note, it reminds me of: “The battle is not to the strong nor the race to the swift.”
On a consumer market note, it reminds me that, with their eyes closed, most people choose Pepsi (in a taste test), but with their eyes open, most people choose Coke (in a supermarket aisle).
It’s not about features and benefits. It’s about how you make me feel.
A joke from the Listserve:
A teenage boy is getting ready to take his girlfriend to prom.
First he goes to rent a tux, but there’s a long tux line at the shop and it takes forever.
Next, he has to get some flowers, so he heads over the the florist and there’s a huge flower line there. He waits forever but eventually gets the flowers.
Then he heads out to rent a limo. Unfortunately, there’s a large limo line at the rental office, but he’s patient and gets the job done.
Finally, the day of the prom comes. The two are dancing happily and his girlfriend is having a great time.
When the song is over, she asks him to get her some punch, so he heads over the the punch table and there is no punch line.
Mantis shrimp: nature’s killing machine.
Is this the same as the one we eat batter fried with butter?
You can see seven million colours of the rainbow and punch through concrete, and still end up on a human’s plate.
