Don’t be offended. I’m simply asking a question based on my observations that are not limited to the iMore Forums. If I opt to buy an iPhone encased in glass, why would I blame Apple when I drop and break it? It’s not like Apple dropped it. Is not the fault all ‘mine’? Why would I blame Apple for choosing to keep a device that I felt was too slippery to grasp firmly and then end up dropping and breaking it? Did I not have the option to return the slippery device or encase it in a non-slippery case? When do we take responsibility for our own actions or decisions? Apple creates new iPhone devices every year, and during the keynote, they describe the materials used to make them. Afterwards, we make the decision to buy those items, and yet, rush to blame Apple for them not being strong enough, foolproof enough or not made specifically to our personal preferences. In addition, why do we get offended when someone uses ‘common sense’ by reminding us that there are non-Apple options available that may suit our needs better? I mean, when we complain, we tend to mention non-Apple devices that have everything we desire, but how dare someone uses common sense and recommend those products to us? I mean, it only makes sense these days to continue to use and complain about a product you’re unhappy with, right?........is common sense and personal responsibility no longer highly revered?
