You're assuming apple fanatics operate on the basis of logical argument. They often don't. Most buy the next iteration just because it exists, not because it's solving any problem they may or may not have. Making the previous iteration slow or unstable seems like a perfectly logical thing for apple to do to incentivize their rabid fanbase.

>Apple didn't come from behind in the smartphone market

That's total bullshit. Microsoft was selling smartphones long before Apple ever was. The completely came from behind in the market.

>Apple introduced revolutionary new hardware - capacitive based multitouch technology

No they didn't. That already existed long before Apple came along and used it.

Apple trying to say they invented multitouch is a complete joke, and frankly is insulting to all the other people involved. See:

"But truth be told, you are probably not really interested in the truth. You would rather keep your blinders on so you don't have to face the fact that this is a serious problem that technical women / geek girls face every day. You might have to change your views and own up to how you are part of the problem."

There's the problem. Blanket statements. There's no actual proof that Man X is part of the problem, but he fucking better well get to apologising.

"The real truth is something that most men have trouble understanding: That women, like lawyers, have no problem at all holding two mutually exclusive opinions at the same time. They want to be skinny and make a diet and they want to eat that cake. To many women, there's no conflict in that."

Can you provide something a little more conclusive to substantiate this claim? It seems more made up than anything based in actual fact.

What we're all forgetting here is that we're still moving out of the dark ages of computer use, since the generation that suffered the most for the sake of their ambitions are still alive. The one where being a computer enthusiast meant you were a social pariah and were destined to be abused constantly by everyone, especially all through highschool. Then bam, society takes a hard left and suddenly it's cool to be tech savvy. That doesn't help all the people that got shit on for decades before things turned around.

Now these abused souls are grown up, and in the industry and you wonder why they're assholes? If this were any other situation you'd have governments creating support groups. Instead, everyone is demonizing them for being harsh and defensive. You're not going to see this problem go away for several generations, if it goes away at all and it is a problem that society itself built through its perpetual abuse of other people.
