How to Insult the Mac Brigade

I’ve insulted the Mac Brigade. I am so sorry. I didn’t realise that putting stickers on an Apple Macbook was such a heinous crime. HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO STUPID?

Well, that’s how Bernie puts it anyway. Sort of. He posted a photo of my Macbook at BlogTalk and the response surprised me. Hahahaha. Thud! (Laughing my head off)

For those who missed the original shot, here’s one I took moments ago. There are stickers from Laughing Squid (and a button too), (Thanks Nikolay),, Hyku, that WordPress crowd who get everywhere, and 2 from Om Malik: FoundRead and NewTeeVee.
The other button says, “hard bloggin’ scientist” and I got that from Jan Schmidt last Tuesday at BlogTalk. Thanks!


Lovely isn’t it? Who’s on your laptop? Anyone got a Dell sticker to put on the Apple Logo? It’d shine through nicely!

Unless you are following each other you can’t do a DM on twitter..

I wonder what other hardware companies would like to see their stickers on Apple MacBooks 🙂


I used to have stickers on my laptop… My wife didnt like them so she painted my laptop with lavender coloured paint!!! It was water based emulsion paint and now it looks really bad!

The stickers are a damn good idea. I should get some for my Mac aluminium G4 PowerBook case which scratches so easily! However the old dear is going so well after three years that I won’t have a bad thing said about it.

I work for an AASP. And one of our products is to copy the users data to their newly bought first mac, from windows.

I once had to switch a windows user to mac, he brought in a grey Dell laptop with an Apple sticker plastered over the Dell logo on the lid… I think he wanted a mac for some time, badly.

[…] I destroyed my Apple Macbook I thought I’d never get to put stickers on a Macbook again. Luckily the machine was insured and the replacement Macbook came this […]

Donncha: I apologize for messing up the first time around. You still want that Dell sticker?

If so, dm me your mailing address in Twitter. I’m following you now.
