Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

And yet, in that huge wall of text, you still did not describe what was said to you -- you only stated that the end result of the interaction is that you were left feeling... inadequate. It's funny how you have an issue with being judged over the Internet without me directly knowing you when you continue judge Mac owners as needing to buy a lifestyle and follow the herd vs buying it based on merits.

You working at Apple or not, being an Apple product guy or not, etc. has nothing to do my post (actually, it's very telling that you actually think that would matter). What I'm pointing out to you is the ridiculousness of generalizing personalities for a multi-million product userbase. Is it still not clear to you how you are doing the exact thing to these users that you are criticizing them of?

I've taken no offense and am just amusingly pointing out the hypocrisy of your argument. Clearly, you appear have taken offense to that with your defense that I do not know you -- but hey, you just might need to re-examine how you approach this Internet topic just as much you need to recognize your own hypocrisy.
