I'm of the mind that people who are most satisfied with their choice of platform are also the least likely to slam the other side.
It would be fun to do a Geek Emporium clean debate on the iPhone 4S vs. the Galaxy Nexus, though. Maybe do a thread on each category, come to a consensus, and move on to the next one, crowning the victor at the end. Show people that the two factions can be reasonable in their assessments.
WP7 is definitely the prettiest of the OS's, if you ask me.

Someone had to say it. What I find interesting is that they say that you have to use an iPhone to appreciate it, but, for a lot of people, using an iPhone might make them appreciate things that they had with their non-Apple products, like being able to swap out batteries and SD cards and put things on the device without having to use iTunes. It's easy to take those things for granted... until you don't have them. None of those things are important to guys like MG, but the myopia that Topolsky speaks of is that they think, because they're not important to them, that they're not important, period, for anyone. The Apple/Mercedes comparison isn't so accurate, IMO, because it's not just a matter of price (i.e. if price were no issue, everyone would want the more expensive car). There are a number of reasons other than price that many people prefer alternatives to Apple products, and failing to recognize that is a part of the problem with uber Apple enthusiasts like these in question.
