In a 2-minute 47-second hit where I call for the firing of Tim Cook, I hardly expected a bunch of ... wait ... what should we call them? Some politically incorrect cats -- not me, of course -- used to refer to the most ardent supporters of the artist formerly known as RIM as "RIMTARDS." That's Blackberry ( BBRY) now, FYI. And plenty of people, particularly the folks who came after me, pejoratively refer to people who really like Apple as "fanboys."
What do we call this new cult of unstable personalities who go to the extreme to defend Google's ( GOOG) Android operating system? Because that's just what they did. They went berserk because I claim Apple dominates over Google and Samsung. One person even said I should be stoned. And they weren't speaking in Cheech and Chong terms, which I could get with . . . they still live in the days of Mary Magdalene.
Their recurring argument against my assertion of Apple domination amounted to little more than look at the marketshare data. At that point, you quickly realize they have no idea what they're talking about whatsoever.
