You also have to love how this clown uses his post count as a means of suggesting forum "superiority".
Other than, of course, the fact that 'naive worship' doesn't exist except in the mind of the Apple-hating trolls.
You might, however, ask yourself what would cause someone to spend countless hours and thousands of posts bashing products that they don't own and would never even consider buying.

OH, right. All these Apple rumors over the last 3 years were 100% true. These journalists would never publish something without fully verifying it.
That's really good news. Now people can stop complaining about AT&T because the Verizon phone must be coming out this summer. After all, in your world, journalists always verify their facts.
How does either of those statements prove anything? Journalism in this country died 10 years ago. Today, journalism involves nothing more than following the Internet blogs and repeating the same information over and over and over - until people start to believe it.
And Schumer is a grandstanding hot dog. What makes you think he knows anything about the topic? Furthermore, his position is inconsistent with the bloggers you cite. They say Apple will release a fix tomorrow. He says Apple needs to start working on a fix. They can't both be right.
