Diehard Mac & Apple fans often have a lot in common — personalities, creative professions, a similar sense of style and aesthetics, taste, and of course a love for technology.” To register for the beta, users must first check off which Apple products they own, from a list that includes i Pod, Mac Book, i Phone and i Pad.Instead of the usual dating site background questions like, “What traits do you look for in an ideal mate?” and “Describe your relationship with your parents,” will prompt users to answer questions such as “What’s your ideal i Tunes playlist? ” Profiles will prominently feature favorite apps — and before uploading their profile pics, users will have to pose with an Apple product or in an Apple store.
