Stop Ruining "What's in your bag"
Why is it that in the comments of every single "What's in your bag" post it is just people complaining about how many of the Verge staff use MacBooks, even the posts where the person doesn't use a MacBook. e.g. Kimber Streams.
The majority of people complaining just seem offended for no apparent reason. They just don't like Apple products and want to find any possible reason to complain about them. The fact is that Apple make very good laptops and so people use them. Even the majority of Windows users agree that MacBooks are very good products.
It makes sense that Verge writers who are obviously very passionate about technology would use the absolute best product for them which in many cases seems to be the MacBook Air. Whether you like the Mac OS or not and whether you think the price is justified, it's very difficult to argue that it's not the best ultra portable laptop on the market.
Amongst the commenters who actually do bother to back up their complaints seem to go for the same reasoning:
"How can the Verge staff give fair unbiased, fair opinions on other products if they all use MacBooks?"
This to me just seems a ridiculous argument. Just because they choose a particular laptop doesn't mean they can't have a valuable opinion on other laptops.
I personally use a MacBook Air - That doesn't mean I don't think other laptops are great or love my custom built gaming rig.
I drive a Ford - That doesn't mean I don't appreciate other cars from other manufacturers.
I like to watch football (soccer) - That doesn't mean that I don't appreciate the entertainment value and skill in other sports.
I love bacon - That doesn't mean I don't enjoy eating many other foods.
Main point: Why can't we use these interesting posts to discuss with our favourite writers and amongst ourselves what wonderful technology we use and why rather than turning them all into an Apple bitching fest?
