The Apple Community
For decades, Apple has competed head-to-head against Microsoft's corporate-based product lines with goods and services produced for personal users on the basis of their intuitive ease of use. Apple has long established a special appeal to highly creative people, including artists and writers, and to people who live an unconventional lifestyle. Many high-end users have adopted Mac products on the basis of elegant and innovative visual designs, styling and materials, allowing Apple to enjoy a cult-like following.
In recent years, Apple has broadened its appeal considerably to mainstream, and even corporate, users, given the massive popularity and sales of its trendsetting mobile devices and all-in-one computers. It has had notable success in marketing its entertainment services, like iTunes and Apple TV, as well. Apple has gained standing as a viable alternative to Windows, even as intense global competition from Windows-based and Android manufacturers continues.
The Apple community is concerned with the culture of being a Mac user - given Apple's integrated product lines, software, and services - and with Apple's future direction. A proliferation of websites is caught up in online news and discussions about current products and services and how to use them, and with Mac-related rumors and leaks (particularly given Apple's tight-lipped official stance on future releases).
