Marketing is actually part of the product.
That’s an intangible element of Apple products that is often missed by the Android, Windows, Meta Quest commenters.
Sure, the other products do “the same things” the Apple products does, but Samsung, Microsoft, Meta, Google marketing is woeful.
This isn’t an Apple thing, this is a human thing. Some of us just want to be a part of something beautiful and cool.
An Apple invoice and delivery is not just some plastic and metal, software, and some USB cords. It’s also a story, a narrative that some people with certain taste, would like to purchase.
And the rest of you can go use your Android, Dell, Meta Quest.
