My friend Watts has a perspicacious tweet concerning those who hate Apple:
At times I suspect hating Apple is at least as much of a fashion
statement as buying them is.
That's right, I think. How else to reconcile the near universal panning of the new iPhones by the technical press with Apple's announcement that weekend sales of the new iPhones set a new record of nine million units? Apple also revealed, in the same announcement, that over 200 million iOS devices are now running iOS 7, which was mostly panned by the press as well.
