I just prefaced an online argument defending Apple products with the words “I am not an apple fanboy… “, as soon as I hit the send button, I realised that I had turned into one. The argument was about how Apple was milking users by introducing a version that had minimal changes in comparison to the previous version – the whole accusation was bollocks and having tried to make a case for it once in facebook I am in no mood to do it again here. What really bugs me is people criticising something without even experiencing it – look at all the Justin Bieber, Twilight haters – the number of haters massively outnumber folks who have actually listened/read Bieber/Twilight. The same happens with Apple too… iPhone5 hasnt even hit the streets and already the naysayers are out with their pitchforks. Its sadistic – its like people want to munch popcorn while watching Apple fail. I suppose it is fashionable to hate the popular thing – regardless of whether it deserves the hate.
Anyway, I cannot help but marvel at the fact that making calls is just one little thing that i can do on my phone. And this struck me as an amazing only on my iPhone, I was using an Android device – I was rebooting it so often that I rarely had any time to sit back and marvel at its beauty or lack of. To reiterate, in case any of you missed it, iPhone rocks and I am in love with it. Screw all the haters.
