    Why do so many people bash the iPhone 4 on the internet? Most of them don't even own an iPhone 4. What's up with all the hate?

    It's human nature. Every company has an enemy. Just ignore them.

    Yeah, I guess it's like why so many people hate the Yankees. When you're the top dog, you get the most hate, right?

    Apple is hardly top dog, but they are one of the elite.

    Its a nice device that seperated itself from the masses, and happens to be made by apple, headed by a guy who's an egotistical azz. The fanboy crowd is loyal. Jobs restricts and wants the device used the way he wants and the fallowers feel like they're in a gated community. The haters cant stand the ladder point.

    I never said it wasnt, and actually love mine. I don't need to drink any of Job's koolaid though to know so. I actually like Job's. Sometimes the loyal fans seem like tools now and again, thats all. the device rocks and Im not planning on leaving my iPhone anytime soon. I have had the Treo 600, 650, 700p, BlackJack II, and iPhone 3G, and now the iPhone 4.

    Exactly. I appreciate the iPhone for what it is, not because I buy into any Apple "cult" mentality.

    My other problem arises because the haters judge and think that even people who like the device like you and I are part of that cult. You get labeled from go when they see the apple.

    If Apple is not the top dog, who is? Start your own thread.

    In the olden days there were "IBM haters." One learned to not to take it personally.

    [I hate those football teams that wear red. Is that the same thing as hating Apple? I root for whatever team is playing the Yankees. Is that the same thing as hating Apple?]

    Didn't Aesop answer that question a couple of thousand years ago? Something about a fox that disparaged the grapes he could not reach.

    If there are at least two entities competing with one another then there will always be fanboys and trolls.

    See: video game consoles, Mac/PC, sports, etc

    I think some people just hate whomever is successful or they see a group of people flocking to something and want to be contrarian about it regardless if they have checked it out or not.

    If Apple has a "cult" following you can't tell me Andorid OS devices don't have a "cult" following themselves. There is no difference at all except Apple makes a better product.

    Oh and Nokia is technically top dog I believe. Maybe not in the US but overall they are on top.
