I've been an avid Apple user ever since I starting writing my college papers on the Macintosh Classic in the early 90s.

I send this warning to Russia's hard-liners: don't mess with Apple. You can't win this fight -- just ask Dr. Dre. Don't let Russia become the next Beats Electronic. When it comes to swallowing up its competitors, the Russian Federation has nothing on Apple.

Are the people who "fall in love" with Macs stupid, gullible individuals? Well this argument could be used with any fanatic of any operating system. But there's one thing that possibly makes the Mac user more "dumb."

It's probably naïve to think that the world's most difficult questions could be answered by an app, but with so few outlets for real dialogue out there, it seemed like it was worth a try. Here, then, is a transcription of my recent attempt to use Siri as the source of all wisdom.

Apple achieved what only five other companies have ever done: a market capitalization of $500 billion. So, will our Apple addiction be as profound and long-lived as our oil addiction? Not if Google and Amazon have anything to do with it.
