Whilst I'm in the process of moving my own tech dependency from Apple to Linux I'm still objective and mature enough to know that "Bendgate" is an overblown non-story for Apple haters to have a field day on. That's all it is.
In fact, it's only a story precisely because it's Apple. Any other company would not have generated a flicker of interest if it was their hardware, and the truth is it could be their hardware because if you're determined enough you can bend anything.
Apple get it in the neck because of their success. When Microsoft we're at the top of the tree, they we're forever being attacked from all angles. Google will get it soon enough, if they're not already. If you want to attack Apple on anything attack them on what seems like a lack of testing on their software updates, or their lack of direction in the post-jobs era (if that's what you believe) but if you think bending a thin, aluminium phone is somehow a failure exclusive to Apple then you're seriously deluded or just a bandwagon jumping hater.
