Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

True bit I think what irks might be the disconnect between what he's been saying and what he's now actually done.

"Don't buy Apple products, they're an evil company and a patent troll. Don't support them by buying their products.. etc etc etc"

"Oh, yeah, I got a new Mac today".

....what?

I've never actually said not to buy any company's products. I just inform - I don't tell anyone what to do.

I have to agree with you.

This kind of consumer cognitive dissonance and then the subsequent rationalizations is what allows corporations (not just Apple) to continue with their atrocious behavior without any real consequences.
