I’ve been antagonistic with Apple products ever since I was a
teenager, when Apple used to try to shove its apps down my throat
(cough iTunes cough) whenever I just wanted to watch a movie
trailer on Quicktime. I never liked Apple’s walled garden and
“we-control-everything” approach, and I particularly disliked
Apple fanboys’ dumb “oh my god there’s a new iThing coming out”
reverence and hysteria.
So when the original iPhone came out a few years ago, I swore in
multiple heated discussions with friends and strangers that I’d
never buy an iPhone. Since then, I’ve only owned Android phones.
First a few HTC ones, now a Sony phone.
Well, I’m sick of it. And I’m ready to go to the dark side.
