Strong to the Core: Apple Pushes Tech, Retail Industries at a Blistering Pace
More interested in reading a rant against Apple's consumer-friendly business practices by a supremely bitter Android user? Check out editor Patrick McCarthy's anti-Apple tirade right here.
Full disclosure: I’m currently typing out this article with one hand so my other can refresh the confirmation page on Verizon that refuses to update the status of my iPhone 7 Plus order (UPDATE: IT'S HERE!!!). So, yes, I’m an Apple enthusiast, but I’m the furthest thing from an Apple apologist—not that my “friends” here in the Dealerscope office would have you believe that.
Perfect proof of that statement can be found in my past purchases as far as smartphones and computers are concerned. For years I swore off Apple, only allowing myself to adopt the latest and greatest Android devices, from the HTC Incredible to the Galaxy Nexus. And God knows how many HPs and Dells I went through over the years. The conversion to Apple has been a slow process that started with an iPad, moved on to an iPhone, then a MacBook Pro, and was made complete recently with a new Apple Watch. I didn’t willingly commit to the Cupertino company’s line of products, but they managed to suck me in and now they refuse to let me go.
