"I’m not racist, I have a black friend"

I’ve noticed a lovely pattern in the typical link-bait anti-Apple articles. They almost always have a disclaimer somewhere that says, “don’t get me wrong, I’m not an Apple hater — I’m writing this from an [Apple product]!”

It’s like they think it validates their article on why Apple is about to collapse — a thinly veiled tactic to boost site traffic.

Example:

To the contrary — I am an Apple fan, through and through. I am writing this on a brand new MacBook Air.

- Some guy saying Apple should announce nothing on September 12th.

Yeah.

Don’t misunderstand me. I have a Macbook Pro. Before I purchased my first iPhone in late 2010, my iPod was seldom out of reach.

- A guy blaming Apple for his impulse-buying habits.

…and a funny Google search.
