Apple "There are many tribes in the tech world: TiVo lovers, Blackberry addicts, Palm Treo fanatics, and people who exhibit unhealthy affection for their Roomba robotic vacuum cleaners. But there is no bigger tribe, and none more zealous, than fans of Apple, who are infamous for their sensitivity to slams, real or imagined, against the beloved company. "It's funny - even if I write a generally positive piece about Apple, I still get more complaints from Apple partisans" than from opponents, Mossberg says. He has even coined a term for the effect. "I call it the Doctrine of Insufficient Adulation."

"The employees do not pick their employers with some sort of philosophy in mind, they do it for the pay-check. Plain and simple."

That is what is called cynicism plain and simple. Belief that people are only motivated by self-interest. You, Sir, are a cynic. ;)
