New Religion: Enormous Multi-National Corporations?
Jun 10, 2010

Recently there have been many threads on dpreview about the Sony NEX cameras and Apple iPad. There is one strong similarity: the religious fervor and intolerance to anything perceived as blasphemy from some of the people in those threads. I have noticed that there are quite a few rabid, brook-no-contrary-opinion posters in both camps and it amazes me. It just goes off the deep end and becomes irrational. These are just doo-dads, gizmos, high-tech devices, right? Why is there such religious fervor on behalf of enormous, impersonal, in-it-for-the-money, multinational corporations? Are there also people out there who are equally religiously intolerant on behalf of other huge corporations such as Archer Daniels Midland, Siemens, Citicorp, etc.?

Are Sony-ism and Apple-ism the new religions for some people?
