I just read this post on Google+ by Ashley Esqueda. https://plus.google.com/+AshleyEsqueda/posts/92SDQYNx5Rq This part struck me the most: Now, I enjoy the general back and forth over which platform is better than the next and I especially enjoy reading why people like the platforms they use but this kind of extreme passion over something as stupid as a phone is way, way overboard. I can't stand simple name calling (fandroid, iTard, Wintard for example) but to wish harm on people for giving another platform a whirl (and a good one at that) makes me ashamed to be interested in tech. I do understand there is an element of pure trolling in some of the reaction to Ashley getting an iPhone 5 but I can't help but feel that some of that reaction may have been genuine. Anyone else got any thoughts on this extreme fanboy/grilism?
