    ptui?

    I don’t have an iPhone, and I couldn’t justify the monthly costs if I wanted one, but I don’t get the hate.

      I hate them because Apple are a gigantic multinational corporation who charge ridiculous amounts of money for products which they create by ring-fencing the commons (taking BSD operating systems and closing them up) but who manage to persuade people that by buying their products rather than the near-identical products of their competitors, they’re being rebellious – and people actually feel smug for falling for their advertising.
      I also hate Apple because they have a de facto monopoly on legal downloads of music, while blocking users of competing software from purchasing music from their store.
