Apple and the blogosphere

I would venture to say that nine out of 10 bloggers writing high-tech hate Apple. Apple is the equivalent of the Republicans on these blogs, and Google, Android, and Samsung are the equivalent of the Democrats... Most of them think they’re young and hip, pop culture hip, that’s high-tech, of course it would be.
— Rush Limbaugh

Most of the interpretations of this article have been too literal when Rush Limbaugh compares Apple to the Republicans. I think when you look at Apple's so called 'closed' eco-system and Google's and Samsung's 'open to all' eco-system the rationale of equating Apple to the Republican ideology and the Google and Samsung to the Democratic ideology makes good sense. I am not sure about the  9 out of 10 bloggers hating Apple, but it is a fact that for the last few months/quarters there has been a lot of negativity surrounding the World's most valuable company and it doesn't make a lot of sense.
