It does seem rather pathetic to use terms like "hater" just because people are critical of the newest gadget produced by some multinational. To use such language indicates that some people do not look at this on a very rational level.
BTW, I am grateful to Apple for a very enjoyable Sunday morning, though. Looking at Apple maps on my wife's iPad was quite entertaining: seaside resorts moved inland, world heritage sites moved to other cities etc. It's amazing. There also has to be some awesome new app that manages to make recent satellite images look like WWII material.
My brother in law who has long had a love affair with all things Apple, back to the days of the IIe, says that people don't understand the new map system. The relocated sights and scenes aren't errors, they are features designed to make your vacation trips more exciting.
