I know many people who could afford to buy dozens of Rolexes but would never be caught dead wearing one.

I remember reading that Bill Gates wears a cheap Casio watch and is proud of it. 

I have an Apple Watch now and like it a lot, but until that came along,  I always preferred to wear a light, cheap Timex that keeps better time than any Rolex and doesn’t scream “I’m a douchebag” like a Rolex does.  I like expensive cars because they are safe, comfortable and perform well, but would never want a heavy, gaudy watch that doesn’t keep good time.

Why do people with Apple Products always tell you about their Apple Products?

I'd rather know about the luxury car than the inferior consumer product you overpaid for!

I don't want no stinking Apple anything....

Stuff designed to not work well with anything but their stuff.

Genius - don't you think?

I love that the little Appleites take videos with their fancy I Phones - and it will only seem to play back right on Apple Products.

I guess they don't want to share with the bulk of the world.  That is the way they roll.

Nice to live in a little bubble - isn't it?

My new fresh out of college Millennial can't go 1 minute without playing with his watch or phone

I want to take them away when he is at work.

It kind of pisses me off to tell you the truth.

Its been 10 years since I worked in an office. My last few some of us had Blackberrys but for the most part they were used for business.  I can't imagine what it is like today with the whole young set wrapped up in their cell phones.
