Casualties of the business tech wars


So what tech team are you on?

If you know me, you know I enjoy my Apple products, and I’ll continue using them until I come across better alternatives. You can insist you know something better, or that I’m blind, or stupid, but why would I care about what you think is better for me.

The technologies and businesses that we all hold so dear will eventually die and be tossed into the trash bin of history.

Let's all laugh at the cavemen lost in a shouting match about which rock was better at bashing a fish’s head in… future generations will surely do the same with us. If I use my tool to get my important tasks done in the most efficient way possible, then why have insecurities about how others choose to bash the heads in of their fish.
