Unless your refurring to Microsoft, or Linux, or Google as a "brand", I don't think so. Dell, or HP, or Asus, or ... don't have the same kind of "cult" following; only Apple.

Well; maybe Linux ...

I was actually thinking of a couple of different industries: automotive, fashion, sports teams.

When you think about it, nothing in the OP's post is unusual.

Thanks for the link. The link to the original BBC article was interesting, too.

The irony is, I'm pretty sure those people lining up are among the first to label others as sheeple.

I would guess by just making an outline of an apple, like one does when they cross themselves.

I thought I heard this when passing my local Apple store during lunch today

Genuis Bar Team Leader: The Lord Jobs be with you.
People: And also with you.
Genuis Bar Team Leader: Lift up your hearts.
People: We lift them [up] to the Apple.
Genuis Bar Team Leader: Let us give thanks to the Lord our Jobs.
People: It is right to give [him] thanks and praise.

Interesting. Been in and around Apple stores a lot and never seen or heard of it.

I wonder if sports fans have their own version?

They will have to ban ipods and iphones from classrooms, since religious symbols are not allowed (you know, separation of church and state).
