Humor "Surprise, surprise, a certain Korean company copies more of Apple's product design. When Apple launched the iPad mini in October 2012, Apple explained the design: the almost 8" screen size and thin border allow one-handed use. Now, the new 8" Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 has the same border design as the iPad mini." From what I can only assume is the The Onion of technology reporting. I love humour like this on a lazy Friday afternoon.

The rabid fanboy-ism is totally tribalistic behavior. I really like how Mark Shuttleworth summed it up in his blog post ( http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/439 ). Tribalism is what drives so much human division, whether in politics, sports, or even technology. We become less interested in the truth, and more interested in the "other side" losing or being proven wrong. We become easily offended because we place our identity so strongly in these different groups.

From the linked blog post: "The very uncool thing about being a fanboy (or fangirl) of a project is that you’re openly declaring both a tribal affiliation and a willingness to reject the work of others just because they belong to a different tribe."
