PCWorld provides a handy field guide to help you spot fanboys in the wild. Come in contact with someone who is strangely turned on by brushed metal, goes rampant on the mention of AT&T, calls everything magical, fears beach volleyballs, and has Coldplay on constant repeat? You’ve got an Apple fanboy on your hands. You’ve been warned.

Are Whedon fanboys assumed to a superset?
Not sure why Zune would be a raw nerve. I’m quite fond of my Zune HD…but then again, the graphic shows an older version.
But then again, I don’t think I’m a PC fanboy, as pretty much nothing in that column applies to me (OK, I do think that the Seinfeld-Gates ads were pretty awful), so perhaps in whatever alien psychology PC fanboys have, Zune is an awful blemish on the Microsoft brand.
This disappointed me. I thought I knew some xbox fanboys and some linux fanboys but apparently it isn’t true. I guess they are just boys. Also a lot of my friends went through a phase of saying meh and kewl, back when we used msn chat a lot instead of facebook (5 years ago?). I didn’t realise they were engaged in some kind of OS war!
Why can’t you just link directly to it? :)
i feel like linking directly to an image instead of the original page that shows an image is like linking to the middle of nowhere. image links tend to change more often than page urls too.
The computer shown above “Apple ][e” is actually a Mac.
And I think the Segway should be under Apple since the Woz drives one!
Not that I give PCWorld much credit, but the apple IIe fishbowl is really a Macintosh classic (not even an SE or something really vintage). An Apple II would make a really boring and shallow fishbowl.
And all the music choices suck, I guess musically I’m a D&Der
Most Apple fans HATED brushed metal.
but love it now!

Get it right.
Are you saying all these other fanboys wouldn’t like a ninja with breasts?
