How much of an Apple Fanboy are you? [INFOGRAPHIC]

There are many different types of Apple fans. Young and old, the obsessed and the ones who just enjoy their products. But what does it take to call yourself a fanboy? I always thought it was anyone that blindly followed Apple and hated all other products. But now I define it as an appreciation for Apple and their high quality of engineering and ecosystem. So I'm happy to call myself one, but if you watch any of my older videos you will see me wholeheartedly rejecting being called a fanboy. 

Some people use the Apple "fanboy" stereotype in arguments as if to make their contender's opinion null and void but if anything it just proves that you have an appreciation for the product that they do not understand, and if their opinion is that strong against Apple then they are probably fanboys of the opposite side (Android) or just aren't very tech savvy.

So with that in mind let's take the test! Curetosy of

I scored a 75%, so I'm not stark raving mad about Apple, just a little obsessed. What did you score? Leave it in the comments below.

"Blue Busters" Long Lost Apple 80s TV Ad Shows them Taking on IBM in this Ghostbusters Spoof Featuring Steve Jobs

Despite being a teenager I absolutely love a splash of retro. That coupled with Steve Jobs and Ghostbusters equals a nerdgasm in any Apple fanboy's book. 

The TV ad shows Apple taking down the sinister looking IBM like their computers are the ghosts. Annoyed IBM customers call up Apple to exterminate their crappy, hard to use IBMs (that also have green goo coming out of them) and replace them with some swanky Apple computers. The 4 minute ad builds to a conclusion similar to that of the actual movie, with them destroying the IBM headquarters somehow at the top of the stairs on a roof. 

It features two cameos of Steve Jobs at  3:03 and 4:03 plus one of Steve Wozniak at 2:20.
