The Apple Hatersí 7 Stages of Grief

Quote:
The Apple hatersí stages of grief go something like this:

Predict failure of new Apple product
Attribute early success of new Apple product to rabid fanbois affected by the reality distortion field
Attribute longer term success of product to stupidity of consumers
Purchase previously scorned product for stupid relatives so they stop bothering you to help support the open source version of Apple product sold by Super Lucky Technology Extreme Inc. that you convinced them to buy
Purchase previously scorned product for yourself just to see what all the fuss is about
Admit that you now own and use the product, but complain about the productís lack of SD card slot on random Internet forum
Forget prior criticism of product, claim that it was revolutionary and an example of how Apple used to be really innovative, but has now lost its edge
Rinse and repeat

Replace Apple with X, and you've pretty much explained every annoying angry tech geek on the internet.
