The Winners Box

3rd week winner: Jason Kiley

picThe Cult of Mac is the first book about Macintosh culture. Written by Wired News journalist Leander Kahney, The Cult of Mac is an in-depth look at Mac users and their unique, creative, and very funny culture. From people who get Mac tattoos and haircuts, to people who steal software with an iPod, this book details Mac culture in all of its forms. It includes a chapter on iPod culture, hacking and jacking. Kahney is currently working on a follow-up: “Cult of iPod; a Guide to iPod Culture,” to be published in the fall by No Starch Press.

The book trashes the Mac.  Leander Kahey (Wired) has gone out of his way to make the Mac look stupid, trendy, and odd ball for years.  You’ve gotta be a Bill Gates fan to like this book.
