Great admirers

Don’t LOVE your iThing just LIKE it.

Sadly there are also other very special people leaving their distinctive traces (aka Fanboy DNA) in social networks most often trying to incite one of these useless and boring platform wars, predominantly about the pros and cons of Android and iOS.

Here’s just one example:

”Lol brainless samsungfags, if you hate iPhone so much, why do you care to watch it? Lol the android community is so damn annoying. Shut up about the shit4 or note 3, stop hatin on Apple!”

Most often these people with unhealthy mental throwbacks talk about their beloved company as if it’s a political candidate running for control of the universe.

A phone might not seem to be something worth fighting over, but what it stands for most definitely is.

A fanboy immediately turns into a hostage. Hostages have no choice but to buy certain products. They are far less likely to care if one device is better than another. It’s the choosing one thing over another which leads to narratives about why you did it. If you have to rationalize why you bought a luxury item, you will probably find ways to see how it fits in with your self-image.
