Cupidtino goes into open-beta

A new dating site, Cupidtino has just gone into open beta. The site is dedicated to people who love Apple products, in the hopes of helping them find other people who love Apple products.

This is the first dating site which targets Apple users only, but that is not where the Apple connection ends on the site; if you sign up and make a profile, you will see that the entire site is dedicated to Apple's products. If you see somebody that you like on the website, or wish to contact, you "Mac" them (which is in fact very similar to a "poke" on other sites). The site also recommends if you are meeting someone, then a perfect place for your first meeting would be an Apple Store, where the two of you can peruse the wears of the store and discuss your passion for Apple products. In fact, the site even calculates the best Apple store for your to meet at.

The most shocking news about the site is that it is only accessible for users with a Mac, iPhone, or iPad, which seriously limits the market size they are targetting.

With the site being the first of its kind, it will be interesting to see how well it is taken. The 3 San Francisco based developers are banking on the fact that people require their future partner to be interested in or own Apple products, which many may not see as the ultimate "deal maker" or "deal breaker".

I used to do that in IRC and aol chatrooms...call myself something like hotgirl4u18 and see just how many pervs would message me asking A/S/L/pic? jeez took it even further by sending them yahoo'd photos (before googles day) fun times.

You know that you're the perv for doing that... dudes like chicks, if you make yourself look like a chick, they're always be some guy somewhere that will try to get you. That doesn't make them particularly pervy... You on the other hand, you're twisted !

I think a Linux version has a better chance of taking off

I don't know. Somehow I doubt inevergetlaid.org is going to really go anywhere.

There's going to be many broken hearts, when Windows or Linux fanboys hack into their dating system and tell the "two lovers" to meet at a Windows store instead

LOL! )))

Wow, what a really...really...stupid idea. I just don't know what else to say...I guess fanboys now have a place to get together and stroke each others....ummm, egos....

Those apple fanboys should create their own religion. Appleism for ever!!!

I would join that religion over any of the other major religions out there.

wow, talk about a niche...
A similar 'love' of apple products is going to make a good relationship....?

If their "good relationship" consists of worshipping the ground that Steve Jobs walks on, then yes.

It's no different than religious dating sites - people who use those sites have the belief that a common love of <insert religious icon here> will make a good relationship.

Wait the worship of Apple has crossed into the religious domain? Do these people face Cupertino several times a day to worship ala Mecca? I think we have a cult

Well..... People who use Apple products always try to convert others to Apple. If you refuse, they look down on you. And also, by approving and denying Apps based on their content, Apple tries to force their views of what is and isn't moral.

True that. One of my mates stayed over last weekend and started attacking my PC system and saying how his 27' iMac was far more superior. I had to point out that I have an i7, 12gb ram etc etc whilst he was stuck on a Core2Duo. He changed tack and tried pointing out aesthetics instead and hardware was irrelevant. My computer case is quite pretty as well as my monitor and speakers. I only have cables for my mouse and keyboard as I prefer wires to wireless. I laughed at his failed attempts to convert me to use a Mac. I also had to laugh when we went out clubbing, his iPhone died although he charged it in the morning. My Windows Mobile phone was still going strong at 90%. I love Apple fanboys.

Wow, that's a pretty dumb idea.

+1... I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that this was SJ's idea. After all, he does believe is he some sort of god that's exempt from the rules and should be worshiped.
