Those of us in the Cult of Apple (PBU Steve Jobs) may have lost Brexit, may have lost the United States, but at least we know our choice of computer platform is not just technically but actually morally superior to others. Therefore, when it was tantelising within our grasp to covert one of our most vocal heretics, one Tom Winnifrith, to our side, our ruliing body, the Council of Smug rejoiced.
After all, when Tom writes I really hate Bill Gates & Microsoft with a fucking passion - 36 hours offline thanks to an upgrade and Photo article: My cunning plan turns out to be not so cunning after all - I now know what hell is: Tom Winnifrith because his Windows machine insists on cutting off Internet and updating itself for hours upon hours when Tom is hundreds of miles away form home, we knew it could just be a matter of time.
Yet, it was not to be. Not yet.
The Windows penitent approached the Cult of Mac and asked the magic words: So how much does a Mac cost?
The answer will determine everything - do we gain another or do we lose them again for another Windows update generation.
'It's around £799 for the cheapest one,' answered the Cult of Mac.
'Unreasonable!' cried Tom. 'I can buy a windows machine for half of that. And I do, twice per year every year.'
The Cult of Mac may have missed Tom this year. But we'll get him. We'll get him.
