I first heard about a girl named Hermione marrying her Mac this morning on my drive into work. It was incorrectly reported by a Chicago area FM radio station that it was the actress that portraits Hermione Granger of Harry Potter fame was engaged to her Mac. And I was pretty much going to leave it at some funny business by some local radio jocks.
But I started looking into this a bit here and was pretty surprised to see just how much love some users have for their Macs!
The latest chapter in this romance novel features 24-year-old Hermione Way…who reportedly has been unofficially engaged to her Mac laptop, fondly referred to as Alex, for 11 months now.
She apparently has spent every minute of every day with Alex for the past two years, and while she holds a rally against current laws not allowing humans to marry computers, she plans on exchanging vows on January 31.
Naturally we want you to experience all the emotion and relate to her connection to Alex, so the clip that will soon have everyone forgetting about Avatar is ready for your viewing enjoyment here.
Now, I don’t know if this is just a publicity stunt or not. She certainly holds a poker face while telling her tale to the camera. And the only reason why I think there could be some truth to her professed affinity for her Mac…OWC Robert not withstanding…is this Mac user’s obvious comfort with his machine.
