  • Cupidtino Takes Aim at Apple Fanboys and Fangirls



    Apple fanboys and fangirls may take offense to being called "geeks," but a new dating website is about to be launched that will help said "Apple geeks" find more than just one another. Perhaps they will also find love. Stupid? Yes. But "Cupidtino" is the buzz of the blogosophere today, despite sounding like the premise of a bad Saturday Night Live skit.

    In a nutshell, Cupidtino is a social network for Apple fanboys and fangirls to find romance beneath the rubric of a shared interest - all things Apple. Hoping to make hearts glow like our beloved LED-illuminated screens, Cupidtino is certainly poised to become an innovative online community when it officially launches next month.

    We created the first Mac-inspired dating site to help you find other Machearts around you.
    For now, the folks behind Cupidtino are drafting beta users to "test out" the site, all the while its being hyped and promoted everywhere from Twitter to Facebook. It goes without saying, of course, that Cupidtino will be available "exclusively" on Apple platforms Safari, iPhone and iPad apps.

    While it may sound like a joke, most of us are aware of online dating success stories that have blossomed in the chat rooms and online platforms that are otherwise incessantly advertised on television these days. A few of my married friends, in fact, have even met via social networks that helped them realize just how much they have in common. Could this happen with Cupidtino? Perhaps it will. And the result could be extraordinary. After all, if Apple fanboys and fangirls meet and begin to breed, we can create a super-colony of Apple fan babies, giving rise to a whole new slate of products, like iDiapers and iPacifiers.

    The possibilities are truly endless.

      All Mac users I've met are definitely not these. They basically require a computer with training wheels, therefore, Mac.

      How are Apple fanboys geeks? Every Apple user I have ever known has been completely oblivious to technology - they buy Apple computers because they're advertised as simple.

      More stereotypes. I know more windows users that are clueless when it comes to technology. They buy PC computers because they are advertised as cheap. Not every PC user is some sort of ***X0r genius, just like not every Apple user is a tree hugging, wine sipping, starbucks drinking, vegan, who doesn't know anything about tech.

      I'm an Apple user, in fact my first computer was a Macintosh, back in the early 90's. Windows 3.x was out, and I didn't like it. It was until Win95 came out that I made the switch to Windows. Building your own was ALOT cheaper, more so than today, than buying anything prebuilt and I built my fair share of them.

      I grew tired of constantly having to do maintenance on PC's though. Viruses and other malware just got old quick. Eventually I had enough. The Mac mini had just ben announced and looked very interesting. By this time, I had no idea how far along Apple had come nor what they had to offer. I went to the Apple store, and immediately fell in love with the UI and form factor.

      So yeah, I'm a red blooded American, US Marine, meat eating, woman loving, geek/techie Apple user.

      Straw man. I never claimed Windows users' were experts, I only commented that Apple fans were not smarter. Secondly, Windows PCs aren't advertised as cheap - they're barely advertised at all. With Windows market share, there is no need for advertisements.

      Well that's good. You saw the options and you made your choice. Good on ya.

      In my experience, I have never had a problem with viruses. Common sense is all it takes.

      Alright? I wasn't commenting on you personally, I was commenting on Apple's previous advertising methods and how it was never aimed at technologically inclined people.

      There are Apple fans that are smarter than your Windows users. They are techies in every way but they choose to be open in their PC environment unlike most clowns on here who like to jump on the bandwagon of bashing Apple.

      And if you seriously have not seen any commercials about Windows being cheaper you are either lying or you don't watch that much television. They have Windows commercials advertising people going to best buy and purchasing a windows based laptop because it's cheaper in price. You should get your facts straight.

      People will always be like that though always bashing on other people who have different OSs. I guess they have nothing better to do. For people who are open minded about OS and like to have a wide variety i say more power to you. There's no need to follow sheep and use only 1 type of OS just because you're afraid of what people may think. Let them think, they're just a bunch of clowns on a bandwagon with little to no self-esteem.

      Hating on people with Mac OS...so childish.

      Alternatively, they prefer an open operating system.

      While I don't watch that much television, I do follow Microsoft's advertising team relatively closely. Their "buy a PC" ad was relatively shortlived and is no where near as extensive as Apple's "Mac vs PC" ads or iPod/iPhone ads were.

      I agree. That's why I advocate against following a company blindly.

      To follow sheep doesn't make sense, to follow blindly makes you a sheep.

      I don't see how any of this is relevant.

      I bet you also think racism, homophobia and rape are all bad things too!

      Hardly. They want a computer that works. Whereas you want a computer that has a big settings menu and allows you to stink it up with a disgusting theme.

      I mean, you probably changed your graphics card and installed some memory once, hardly makes you an IT guru.
