A bright light casts a dark shadow. The more loyal your followers are, the more rabid your detractors will be. No company in the modern world embodies this better than Apple, Inc, a multinational corporation bordering on a religion. From the Apple II computer to the latest iPhone, Apple has polarized the tech community
I really started to notice this polarization a little while ago, when I traded in my little flip phone for an iPhone 4S. So far, I like it. Except for one thing: the ribbing from Android fanboys (and occasionally fangirls).
“What kind of phone do you have?” has become a popular question amongst my peers, up there with “Where are you from?” and “What do you do?” However, it’s a much more polarizing question. People are very loyal to their choice of phone platforms. And everyone seems to have a strong opinion about Apple products, one way or another.
As for me, I have an iPhone and a Windows PC. I like them both, though if I had to pick, I’d probably go with Apple. What about you? What are your thoughts on iPhone vs Android? How about Mac vs PC?
