Apple geeks get wed in La La Land

Apple fanboys have a knack of really grating. Usually it’s the shallowness of a cult based on buying the latest gadget and the smugness the purchase engenders.

But when Apple fanbois come to the reality of deep meaningful relationships you would think the craziness would stop there. Apparently not.

Josh and Ting Li held their wedding in an Apple store.

On the stroke of midnight on Valentine’s Day, the couple, wearing full wedding regalia, their pet shiba inu, Shio, and 20 guests walked down the glass spiral staircase at the Fifth Avenue store in New York.

Henry Hu, dressed like Steve Jobs in a black mock turtle-neck skivvy and jeans, presided over the ceremony and declared the couple husband and wife.

Vows were read from his iPhone and the rings were tied to a first-generation iPod and attached to the dog’s collar.

The dog appears to be the only one with common sense in the whole atrocity. It refused to hand over the rings, probably on the basis that two Apple nuts who arranged a stunt like this, should not be allowed to breed.

The couple met while shopping for an iPod. To make the shallowness even more complete the wedding vows contained a line from a speech that Jobs delivered at Stanford University in June, 2005: “You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down.”

Unfortunately they seem to be implying that the thing they most believe in is a firm that makes over priced toys and controls every aspect of their lives including the one day which is supposed to celebrate their relationship and not the shiny electronics in their pockets.
