Let's see if anyone is willing to discuss the underlying paradigm without it devolving into an actual platform war... I'm a nerd by nature. My friends are too. Many of them are gamers. I am not. I haven't played video games since floppy disks were actually floppy. Right now my Facebook news feed is ablaze with this PS4 v. Xbox One drama. Here in the forum there is a thread on the subject wherein members have posted videos created by individuals who seem to be extremely emotionally invested in the subject. There is one video where the young man is nearly foaming at the mouth. I am a Mac user. I don't 'fanboy' my Mac exclusivity, yet I am often treated to bizarre looks from others when I whip out my 13 inches of frosted aluminum at the local Starbucks. Online, I am treated to scorn whenever I ask a question specific to Mac as the fanboy-haters lash me with their own fanboying from the other side of the fence. I have an iPhone. I've had other phones in between models of iPhone but I always return to the iPhone because I am the customer for whom it is made. I am not the customer for the other platforms. Android users IRL and online constantly need to hold up their phones at me in a nya-nya-nya-nya-nya-nya way and show me how they share playlists just by touching another like phone model. Assuming they know someone with a like phone model. Even I myself am having difficulty just now holding back my own platform rage. Why? What is it about this dynamic that makes it fall under the same emotional umbrella as political dogma and religion? People don't feel this way about microwave ovens. There are no websites filled of house-wives and house-husbands calling each other obscene names or dishing out snarky retorts concerning a particular oven's lack of a combination microwave/convection mode. There aren't. I looked. There are no Behr Paint hooligans hanging out in front of Glidden stores to deride and snicker at the customers as they walk out. So what gives?
