Anti-Apple Anger

I've noticed a very clear trend among tech sites I read: Android fans are unusually quick to fill the comment box with rage on articles that mention anything positive about Apple or its products. The reverse — Apple fans leaving angry comments on pro-Android articles — is almost completely absent from the sites I've seen, including sites like The Verge that have many readers in both camps.

Now I think I'm starting to understand.
