Anyone else kind of bummed out? ...

I've been in the mac community a while now and I remember how much smaller it used to be. Seems like it's grown so much that it looses it's "community" kind of fell.

Does anyone know what I mean?

No. I have no clue what you mean... Apple was the underdog for many years, at times on the brink of elimination. They have rebound and grown themselves to one of the biggest brands in the world, and, what, you are bummed because you can't feel like the "cool" guy in Starbucks with a Mac anymore?? Get over it...

Harsh. Hipster spit in your coffee this morning?

@adam.sn: I know what you mean but I can't exactly say it's a bad thing. As Liam pointed out it is nice that Apple is doing well as a company. Of course the community is no longer "Apple Users", it's Registered Mac Developers, iPhone jailbreakers, iPod Gamers, iPad fans, Hackers, Photographers, musicians... you get the idea.

the idea that a choice of computer hardware would bring people together into a "community" is a little weird to me. your laptop is a tool, its not a extension of who you are and it certainly doesn't say anything about you as a person.

I don't know about that, what with the Cult of Mac and all. Apple fanboys like myself are like religious fanatics many times…something does get lost when Apple products become as ubiquitous as, say, PC's. Try finding a kid that owns an MP3 player that isn't an iPod these days. Actually what's funny is that many of them are also diehard PC defenders…yet they rely on little mini Apple computers everyday in the form of an iPod.
