“I’m totally fscking into Apple,” Howard Stern announced on his Sirius XM program this morning.
“Listen, I’m not doing a commercial here,” Stern stated. “I love it, I love it, I love it…. I don’t know why I didn’t do this years ago!”
Stern then advised his sidekick Robin Quivers to dump all of her PC crap and get over to the Apple Store immediately. Stern explains how he uses iChat to talk to Jimmy Kimmmel and others.
“I love my iPad 2, too,” Stern reported.
Stern is also going to dump his Android phone and get an Apple iPhone with a “Bluetooh keyboard” as he feels he needs physical keys. (He’ll learn otherwise.)
Stern said of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, “This guy is a genius, Robin. A genius!”
“Right, Fred?” Stern asked studio-mate Fred Norris. “You’re an Apple guy right?” Norris replied, “Yes, I’m an Apple man all the way… Windows PC stuff, throw it out the window.”
Stern said, “I was duped [by Bill Gates]. PC my ass, I’m an Apple guy now… I love it, I love it!”
Stern then advised Quivers to sit tight on her long-planned move from BlackBerry to Android phone while he explores the Apple iPhone 4 possibilities. “Sit tight, I’ll advise you once I check it out,” said Stern.
Stern seems particularly enamored with Apple iChat, going into a lengthy discussion about how it works and his new iPad 2 which he described simply as “Fscking amazing!”
MacDailyNews Take: Good job to whoever finally managed to slip Stern the red pill! What’s happening right now to Stern has happened to millions of people upon upgrading to Apple products, but to hear The Awakening unfold live is a wonderful thing. It may not have been a commercial, but it might as well have been (multiplied by at least a thousand), as publicity like this just cannot be bought. Stern’s influence will result in even more Mac, iPad, and iPhone sales for Apple.
