This has reached epidemic levels. Jeffrey Mincey has a few examples and the reasons why:
ZDNet’s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, an official member of the technorati elite politburo and graduate of the nattering nabobs of negativism regarding all things Apple, is out with another drive-by shooting.
Armchair quarterback much? Apple receives an outsized pouring of criticism with little substance to back it up. Why? For tech rag critics it’s easy and does not take much time.
As usual with drive-by shootings true comparisons are difficult to come by because that would require actual effort to dig up to, you know, compare. Instead, we’re treated to negative bias missives that can be written up by the dozen in 20-minutes or so.
It couldn’t have taken Kingsley-Hughes half that long. A comparison of Apple’s issues to competitors with similar issues would take a day of research and that does not fit into the tl;dr problem these days
