The Cult of Mac (Paperback Edition)

by

The Cult of Mac (Paperback Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No product on the planet enjoys the devotion of a Macintosh computer. Famously dedicated to their machines, many Mac fans eat, sleep and breathe Macintosh. In The Cult of Mac, Wired News managing editor Leander Kahney takes an in-depth look at Mac users and their unique, creative, and often very funny culture. From people who get Mac tattoos and haircuts, to those who furnish their apartments out of empty Mac boxes, the book details Mac fandom in all of its forms. This paperback edition includes an all-new chapter about the iPod, updates throughout, and new photos that reflect current Apple technology.

Book News Annotation:

Technology journalist Kahney investigates the charming and sometimes bizarre world of Macintosh fanatics. He describes some of the ways that individual users express their devotion (getting tattoos, working as volunteer salespeople, converting old machines into fish tanks) and also analyzes the underpinnings of the larger subculture of which they are a part. Illustrated throughout with color photos, and with a new iPod chapter, this is the first paperback edition of a volume originally published in 2005. Kahney writes the "Cult of Mac" column for Wired News.
