    I dont understand why apple haters hate on apple fans so much, does it really effect you what complete strangers buy? Who cares, let them spend their money.

    I'm going to guess that was written before you read the article (if you did). I'll edit the title.

    EDIT: Since I can't edit the title, please remove the Apple part. Thank you all mighty madmin crew.

    I don't hate apple products but I hate their customer service with every parcel of my being. I was in there on Friday and the atmospheric pressure of the employees' aloofness and egotism is suffocating. They have like 50 employees on duty yet they're all talking to someone and you have to basically grovel for them to pay you any mind.

    I'm getting a Blackberry next year. So oves.

    Because they have an effect on the rest of the market. Every dollar spent is a vote, and Apple fans are voting in favor of overpriced products.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Ah... this explains why Quiznos charges a dollar more to go from a small to a medium sub while it charges a $1.40 to go from a medium to a large. It always pissed me off, but at least now I understand the marketing rationale even if I still think it's dumb.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it
