My favorite is how many apple supporters claim how MS is a monopoly and tries to squash its competition (this is a reason some friends of mine refuse to buy PCs).

I think some of the Apple fanatics treat the company as a borderline cult.

Patenting things and using those patents to try and get licensing is passable, however I don't agree with it's abuse (RAMBUS and such)...

Patenting vague, vague design elements ("Rounded corners, even black borders") and using those patents to REMOVE the competition is ridiculous. German consumers are having their choice and freedom taken away from them because Apple can't deal with problems the same way as any other company.
