Do you make any assumptions based on the brand someone uses?

    Audi. I always assume that the owners of these vehicles will act the maggot on the road, including never indicating at roundabouts.

  • If you wear joop you're trying to finger 15 year old girls, whether you're 15 or 50......

    But you forgot about BMWs:eek:




  • Apple - easily influenced.




  • I'll admit that I think less of people who read The Sun




  • Apple - easily influenced.

    I just prefer the interface. I don't care if the camera is better or not.

    First they came for the socialists...

  • Audi -Middle aged man with greying hair, massive ego, thinks theyre great drivers but are actually dire and drive dangerously because they think it makes them cool.


    Apple - sheep. Doesn't know how restricted their devices are, and how much theyre being ripped off for subpar devices.


    Not a brand but notice a lot of people are addicted to buying useless ****e from amazon they don't need. Addicted to consuming and buying worthless plastic junk while they spend all day just looking at the amazon app. Very sad.

    Same people will also complain they can't afford xyz and are struggling financially.

    Bang of Joop! Off ya.




  • Wrangler jeans - complete mucksavage.




  • Anyone remember yuppies with their filofaxes? The modern equivalent is probably hipsters, collectively they can simply be called knobs.

    Grey tracksuit of any brand = scobe. Bonus scobe points if your kids are wearing matching ones.

    Anything with ostentatious designer labels screams new money or try hard, especially D&G, Gucci, Versace or Marc Jacobs.




  • If you eat at somewhere such as chopped your a hipster and you will move into the next fad.

  • Beatz headphones - Their main concern isn't value for money or sound quality. They probably also have terrible taste in music.

    I'll make allowances for younger people - under 25 say - you can have the best intentions at that age, but lack the nous to know you've fallen for marketing hype.




  • Wrangler jeans - complete mucksavage.

    Don't forget Lee Cooper. Same price bracket as wranglers.. still popular around Crossmaglen, along with the 'dealer' boots.

    Is that the Dealz version?

    Or prefer using superior devices. It's ok though, most people who slate Apple fans as 'sheep', can't afford Apple products anyway.

    Ah sh*t, Harry. May move to Crossmaglen now to be with my people.

    To give wise council, don't. Gringos are NOT welcome.

    Apple have widgets coming this year. Nobody else can say they have that. So ahead of the game.

    Oh yeah I forgot to mention. It's all about the look for apple users.
    Nevermind you're forced to use their ****e software and their compatibility with other computers is terrible, and their phones let you do nothing in terms of accessing their files easily without all the useless itunes and apple software they force you to install, and nevermind the fact their macbooks have such ****e hardware you'll end up paying an extra 1000 euro vs an actual useful computer.

    It all boils down to look. I have an apple product therefore I look like I have money and in my eyes that makes me cool.


    Brainwashed by marketing.




  • When I was a kid I thought only gay men shopped at River Island!




  • Yeah, re apple..in audio anyway 12 grand Apple Mac pros are being destroyed in tests by pcs costing 1/4 the price..

  • Anyone who buys samsung/huawei tend to be the sort of people you see claiming the dole or shop on the yellow sticker aisles.




  • Louis Vuitton bags that cost about three grand and look like shopping bags. Awful. Just complete status symbols generally bought by people who can't afford them.




  • Penney's for men. Any man who wears clothes from Penney's (excluding socks/jocks) outside their home is cheap and his mother probably still makes his dinner.




  • Or prefer using superior devices. It's ok though, most people who slate Apple fans as 'sheep', can't afford Apple products anyway.

    Ah yes. That's it not that they like something else. Must be jealousy.




  • Canada goose is disgusting brand and I find it hard not to instantly dislike anyone wearing it.




  • VW, Audi, Skoda,


    Anything of the VAG persuasion, most likely diesel powered.

    They're for simple aul salads who say "golf yeah, great car, yeah" for all of their 20s, then they graduate to a - a4/a6/octavia, in diesel - to top off maslows hierarchy of white goods cars - at least the lads driving dusters & konas aren't lying to themselves.




  • BMW with "angry" headlamps = knob end.




  • Or prefer using superior devices. It's ok though, most people who slate Apple fans as 'sheep', can't afford Apple products anyway.

    No thanks, enjoy your 60HZ refresh rate and locked down software.

    I'd use a hundred quid Android over a 1200 iPhone.

    You have to hand it to the Apple marketing crew though, there can't be many companies out there where their customers will do everything in their power to defend their products

    I hear conflicting things about this. One one hand people I know who work with anything at all involving graphic design or audio/visual shooting and editing seem to prefer Apple products.

    But anyone I know who works with development or programming seems to hate Apple products.

    So are Apple products "superior" - and, if so, why?
