10 reasons to hate Apple by Philip Elmer-DeWitt @FortuneMagazine May 12, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons FORTUNE — After more than five years writing an Apple AAPL blog, I think I’ve heard ‘em all, from fanboy and lemming to sheeple and iCrap. What is it about this company that attracts such passionate detractors? I’ve started a list. Feel free to add. Apple is arrogant. “Apple designs Macs, the best personal computers in the world…”* Apple is closed. Look at the walls around the App Store. Apple wants total dominance. Remember Adobe Flash? Apple is greedy. What’s it doing with $144.7 billion? Apple’s stuff is overpriced. I can buy a Dell for $299. Apple’s stuff doesn’t work. Just look at the Maps app. Apple is the darling of Wall Street. $705 a share? Apple is Wall Street’s goat. Mr. Market has spoken. Apple has lost its mojo. Just one name: Tim Cook. Apple is doomed. R.I.P. Steve Jobs. *From the boilerplate at the end of Apple’s press releases.
