No, your posts are honestly just symptoms of the larger issue that has been all over any tech related site for about two years now with every iPhone competitor, but certainly has become louder since the droid. It isn't that you aren't entitled to your opinion, it's just remarkably tiring to read all this content from so many people espousing viewpoints that are often incorrect, irrelevant, or at the very least matters of personal choice.
As far as your last post specifically, who is the one generalizing? People who buy apple products, of which there are millions upon millions, are uninformed lemmings who aren't smart or capable enough to know which product to buy? There's a 'droid does' commercial on my tv at least 10 times a day. Google has gotten tremendous press for their offering, and rightly so, from both national media and the tech press. Hp buying palm was national news. In spite of all this, every major apple announcement manages to bring some of the beefiest web infrastructures on the web to their knees....I'd say that if anything, iPhone os users are plenty aware of what is and isn't out there and this silly insistence by those who have opted for alternatives that if everyone just knew about their device they'd make the same choice is what is narrow minded and short sighted.
At this point, in 2010, this is a market that is rapidly approaching it's ceiling in terms of features. All of you can thank apple for the atom bomb they dropped into this i industry a few short years ago. These platforms are rapidly becoming knockoffs of one another, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just means that there isn't now and probably never will be a knockout blow that crowns one company a winner. There are just a lot of great and incredibly functional devices on the market right now, and that's a good thing.
First off, I agree with literally 100% of your post.
However, the same traits you touch on in a constructive fashion can be applied to all Apple fans in the mid-90's or early 2000's, then considered the minority by many. Apple is now THE it name, so brand loyalists 'raging' against the man are IMO necessary to the evolution of ingenuity with respect to any competitors rise. I actually read a great piece recently discussing how Android smartphones are the only devices to bring the 'fanboy' level of any non-Apple phone to similar levels of hype and appreciation to that of the iPhone. It said that in a sea of endless failed "iPhone killers", android smartphones happen to be the only successful attempt at it.
In short, I don't like the incessant fanboy following of any manufacturer either, but I see it as a whole to be a necessary evil that I appreciate for the evolutionary benefits they foster in the end. So long as they are constructive in the praise of their devices (as well as condescension of competitors), it's a great thing IMVHO.
