What's that story about killing the Goose that laid the Golden Egg!
I've never understood brand/company loyalty, especially with Apple and Sony since they charge a really high premium price for their products. It kind of reminds me of that scene in Animal House where the frat pledge is stripped to his underwear and bent over being whacked with a paddle, and after each degrading whack he yells out, "Please sir can I have another." I sort of envision a lot of the Apple fans in that state of mentality--they will take whatever Apple dishes out and be happy with it and remain loyal.
