I know a few Apple haters. You probably do too. They dislike that Apple is “closed,” “elitist,” “think they know best,” or otherwise. I can appreciate those opinions and why they exist. I can also understand the thought that Steve’s recent departure (maybe forever?) is the beginning of the end for Apple. I understand and appreciate all of these ideas, I do. But I always come back to one conclusion, however subjective it may sound:
As an Apple customer, I’ve been the beneficiary of the best computer products ever made in their time- innovative, easy, elegant. Apple detractors, on the contrary and on principle, put up with all manner of utter crap for an entire decade.
