And, also, it doesn't know how to properly manage the billions upon billions in cash it continues to amass. Plus anything else equally-as-irrelevant you can come up with to run with the cool anti-Apple crowd.
That's the game people talk about Apple now. It's sexy. It creates fear. It's the thing irrational stock sell-offs are made of. As I note in the above-mentioned companion article, it's not your job to play hero, defend Apple and buy the stock at what you perceive as the bottom or on a dip. That's a fool's game.
I know. The real fool's game should be the line they sold that snowballed into a $250 per share crash in AAPL's share price. But it's not.
Apple sucks. Say it out loud. Live it. Breathe it. Tim Cook won't hold it against you. Neither will your iPhone.Follow @rocco_thestreet --Written by Rocco Pendola in Santa Monica, Calif.
