Apple = Singapore

Steve Jobs = Lee Kwan Yue

Sleek shiny interface = neat tidy country

Tethered product-line = nepotism and corporatism

Attractive to shallow trendoids = attractive to shallow libertarians

Good for graphics applications = good for graphics workers

Small market share = little red dot

Real business is elsewhere = real world is elsewhere

    Expensive add-ons = expensive everything

    Limited choice of models = PAP

    No radio on iPod = no journalists prepared to criticize Singapore

    Stolen technology from best of Creative Technologies = stolen politico-economic from worst of Milton Friedman

    Freedom to take whatever we give you = PAP

    Bono used in advertisements = Bono refuses to come to Singapore

    Held captive to Apple technology = longest-serving political prisoner EVER (in modern times) was in Singapore

    Cannot tinker with operating system = PAP

    etc etc…
