You've Got Hate Mail

David Pogue, on his New York Times blog:

The hostility for and against Microsoft and Apple hasn't abated. (At a product announcement last week, I sat next to fellow tech columnist Walt Mossberg from The Wall Street Journal. We laughed about our hate mail; Walt, in fact, has identified what he calls the Doctrine of Insufficient Adulation. That's when you give a rave review to an Apple product - but you still get hate mail from Apple fanboys because, in their judgment, it doesn't rave enough.)
