Oh, the shame of it:
With the political season officially getting underway in just about a month, Mac Daily News reports that Net Applications, which tracks operating system market share, found that “higher percentage Mac usage states almost perfectly match up with states that typically vote for Democrats” (via PR.com). (MDN has the Net App map compared to voting trends maps in the 2004 election.) In another segmentation story, Forrester Research (as reported by InfoWorld) found that “Apple users are proportionally more eco-friendly than users of other vendors’ PCs. Moreover, they’re more willing to plunk down extra cash for “green” products.”
Gag. Well, not this Mac geek, anyway. But know what I like? That after months and months of endless political blogging, interminable early debate coverage, and enduringly tedious regurgitation of the “Fred is lazy, he better do something and fast” observation, this guy mentions that the now-perpetual electoral cycle will be “officially getting under way in just about a month.” Why, it’s downright…charming. And a nice reminder, too, that politics ain’t by any means everything — and to some in the body politic, it’s nothing at all. I can’t help but find that refreshing, honestly.
Really, though, I’m only posting this to be sure I beat Sithmonkey to the punch. Because we all know he was gonna.
