Most people aren't keeping up on the news, reading tech sites etc.
But the people who are keeping up with tech sites are the ones who give recommendations to the non-technical about what to buy. Doesn't take much for word of mouth to spread about Kim Jong-Jobs and his evil ways. Tides can turn a lot quicker than we think.
