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."

Are we really that surprised? Their whole marketing campaign was "buy our stuff, its super innovative and you will be the cool kid while everyone else will be these lame PC people." If you manufacture douchebag food, ya gotta keep feeding your douchebag customers. If they can't buy something that makes them feel more elite then everyone else, of course they are going to throw hissy fits. Fact of the matter is they are walking into Verizon and seeing better phones with the competitor. That doesn't settle well for people who think their purchases makes them special, important or creative.
