Objectivity is not part of the process.
True. When Apple slips up it's a big thing, when the others do, not so much. Foxconn suicides, presented as an Apple problem although Foxconn manufactures for HP, Dell and others too. All phones have antenna attenuation when gripped a certain way, Apple's hits front page. Other manufacturers' phones are literally falling apart, doesn't hit the news.
They're all just gadgets, in a world full of gadgets. They'll all be completely obsolete in a couple of years. I buy my stuff for it's cost/benefit ratio, and for me Apple stuff has always been overpriced, over-hyped and over-worshipped. The stuff I use instead is practical, and cost-effective. I don't need or want to acquire labels for their “cool factor”... ain't my style.
