Apple Is Taking Over The World

Updated on April 10, 2012

I believe Apple is taking over the world.

Did you ever see the TV show V? You know, the V who are the “visitors” from outer space, who decide to come to earth to suck the very life out of the people by using up all the water sources. The V who make sure they keep track of everybody by giving them a “members only” jacket that has a monitor inside to watch the earthlings every move.... If you don't understand what I am talking about then you better watch the video below so that you can see what I mean.

V the Visitors are here to take over.

Well.... Apple doesn’t give out jackets, they have the iPhone instead! And... you better believe... there is an “APP” for that!

Yes, my friends, Apple is taking over the world, one iPhone at a time.  It has happened in my own home.  I see the effects of the all powerful communication device surrounding me... but I am holding out, as hard as it may be. It is not like I haven’t been tempted to come over to the dark side, believe me I have, by members of my own family and some of my closest friends even! I am like the lone survivor on an island filled with text messaging, games, videos, and yes...Apps.

There's An App for That....

iPhone Family Time

At family gathering times I look around to see my entire family gazing into their iPhones with wonder and amazement. All conversation ceases, and they have a crazed look on their illuminated faces. Heaven forbid somebodies battery dies. OH wait... we now have the two in one charger so that we can charge two iPhones at once... never fear!

iPhone Accessories

Those little iPhones are more protected than I am! They all have a special covering, which is an additional purchase made from a kiosk at the mall, to make sure they don’t get scratched. Not to mention accessories, those little iPhone beauties are dressed better than I am too. They are clad in anything from bold colors to jewels, as they are changed from one case to another depending on the mood. I know I sound jealous of the iPhone as I contemplate the luxuries that they are afforded. Perhaps they do earn their keep, I am still waiting for them to cook the family dinner, but I am sure the App for that is in the making. Let’s just face it... they get more attention than I do!

Cook the family dinner App?

iPhone the new body appendage.

Owners of iPhones act like they belong to an exclusive club. They can spot each other a mile away.  They even have a special “Bump” App which allows them to transfer all their information to one another without saying a single word.  If they are lonely they can find their fellow iPhone owner friends with a GPS App that rats out their very location.  No use trying to hide when you have your iPhone in hand, and there is never a worry that an iPhone owner would be without their iPhone.  The iPhone itself becomes a literal appendage to the human body.  Cut off their hand, but don’t take away the iPhone.   

iPhone is just a part of you.

iPhone 3G is Amazing!

The iPhone really is an interesting little device.  It has the ability to be a phone, an iPod, an Internet connection and uses technology that is “years ahead of it’s time”.  It has “MobileMe” capabilities that give you email, contacts, and a calendar.  If you lose your iPhone, MobileMe can even help you find it while protecting your private information from others.  The iPhone utilizes a secure corporate network connectivity which allows access to thousands of Apps and allows for personal App development.  With the iPhone you can literally stay connected from anywhere and learn about anything under the sun.  They have an App Store that offers literally thousands of Apps to choose from.


The Apps are as varied as playing games to budgeting your time wisely.  Yes, I believe that there is literally an App for everything.  If there isn’t one, you can have fun and make up your own on App For That.  (Make sure you check out that link... there are some funny Apps people have made up!)

There is an App for literally anything!

State of the Union vs. Apple iPad

Yes, Apple is taking over the world. The President of the United States recently gave his “State of the Union” address but more people were interested in the new product Apple was introducing that same day.  Yes, the iPad was more talked about on the Internet in Blogs and articles the next day than President Obama’s speech.  Perhaps he should have just texted it. 

An appointment to BUY a retail product?

Apple is really very smart.

They offer such exclusivity that they require the consumer to have an appointment just to BUY the product!  I thought that was only for "high end" retail products...do you have to supply a bank statement as well?  I suppose that owning an iPhone is comparable with a Mercedes, or Gucci, or even a Tiffany &Co. product. They provide another carrot, dangled in front of the lowly working horse, or an illusive piece of cheese offered to the rats who are winning the race. 

Yes, Apple is taking over the world.

      I think this person is on the payroll of Apple, as never Have I seen so many adverts advertising Apple's miriad of restricted products. itunes is restrictive, everything that apple do is geared to making them more and more money. long live all those smaller companies who are trying to break into this Apple dominated marketplace. Why are so many people like so many sheep can they not see the writing on the wall. When Apple have achieved total dominance,and they are pretty well there now. They will have you all paying through the nose for every exclusively designed wire,plug and app. We need some healthy competition out there.Over £600 for a tablet?? ridiculas. I wonder how the third world will judge us all spending so much on so little, barking madness!

      Loved this hub D! It is true at our house too. Hubby has an iPhone and my 3-year-old knows how to work it as well as he does. She takes it from him, takes photos with it, records our conversations when we don't know she has it, plays games and tries to call grandma. :)

      It sure it life changing!
