I can already hear the clamouring Google fanboys lining up and champing at the bit to take a crack at Apple over this. If a company whom you dislike is successful, and you continually verbally assault them for their success, and continually call those who buy those products "sheep", then what sense is there in doubling down and hitting them harder over their apology and admission of fault? Would it not be better to acknowledge their honesty, even if you think this is the only honest thing they've done, and applaud them for it even for just a minute?

If you teach a hamster to walk on two legs by setting up a system that delivers an electric shock every time it uses all four, what emotional condition do you think the hamster will be in once it has learned to walk on just its hind legs? On the other hand, in what emotional condition will the one that you used rewards and treats to teach the same behavior to be?

This is a fundamental behavioral principle, and it can apply to people, corporations, governments, and entire nations just as well as it applies to other creatures. Apple is a corporation that some people here attack hardcore, and Apple owners are people just like the rest of us (and NOT "sheep"). So, do you want to help solve the problem by being kinder and forgiving, or would you prefer to have your own fun by making it worse?
