Legal A few days ago, technology blog Valleywag's launched its Apple Tablet Scavenger Hunt, a sort-of contest in which people with evidence of the existence of Apple's much-rumoured tablet could win large sums of money.

Yes, they might start caring then, but it's a little like the way most people seem to treat their Antivirus software. They don't care until they get a virus. By then, of course, it's usually too late to get rid of the problem easily.

If that happens, then Apple fanboys will just do what they've always done when the object of their worship falls on hard times: they crank up the "oppressed minority" posturing.

Remember back in 90s when Apple was circling the drain (AKA the good old days)? There were Apple fanboys who literally tried to equate mockery of Mac users with the Holocaust.
