Fanboys

Politics, religion, sports, bands — these are the tents under which we typically congregate. Allah, Judas Priest, the Cubs, sure. But smartphones?

Some might consider me a fanboy of Apple products. Perhaps I am. Or perhaps I just like pointing out the factual inaccuracies I see on a lot of Apple-bashing web sites. Opinions are fine with me. Saying “I love product X because of feature Y” is stating an opinion. Stating that another product sucks because it does not have that feature is also just an opinion.
