Oh, iPhone people. Please stop.

Imagine there's just the purgatory of Earth, where cheap thrills and pain are distributed in distinctly unequal measures.

Imagine, too, that some of these cheap thrills and pain are created by humans who sneer at other humans for their gadget choices.

Bindi Irwin Shares Cute Photo of Baby Grace 'Adventuring' Through Australia Zoo

  Bindi Irwin Shares Cute Photo of Baby Grace 'Adventuring' Through Australia Zoo The conservationist and her husband, Chandler Powell, welcomed their daughter in March.In the sweet shot, Grace, wearing a pink hat and covered by a blanket that reads "Baby Powell," happily sits in her stroller as she's pushed around the grounds of the Irwin family zoo.

Yes, still.

I was oddly moved, you see, by a plaintive cry from the Android wilderness published in Android Central.

Jeramy Johnson has had enough. He's had enough with his family members. He's had enough with his friends. Well, some of them.

It seems they bathe in an elitist snobbery that incites them to mock his Android proclivities, because they all have iPhones. It seems Johnson has veered away from Apple toward Android and is now paying a troubling price.

"My Apple 'family' just looks at me a little differently now." he said. "I don't mean to say that they are outright rude or offensive, but there is definitely an air of superiority in their questions or comments about my daily carry choices."

Some might say that taking on an air of superiority about someone's phone choice is most definitely rude and offensive. And ignorant. And plain inhuman. And, apparently, still widespread.

Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell Celebrate His First Father's Day: 'His Love for Our Daughter Is Infinite'

  Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell Celebrate His First Father's Day: 'His Love for Our Daughter Is Infinite' Chandler Powell and wife Bindi Irwin welcomed their first baby, daughter Grace Warrior, on March 25Over the weekend, Irwin marked their milestone moment with a special tribute, which also honored her late dad Steve Irwin as well as her father-in-law.

Johnson writes of "the not-so-subtle eye-rolling and even outright disdain that many iPhone users have for Android fans."

I fear he's mad as hell and he isn't going to take this any more. I judge this from his words: "And you know what? It sucks. It's unfair. And I'm sick of it."

Fairness so rarely plays as decisive a role as sickness these days. We don't expect the world to be fair, nor anyone who lives in it.

Why, even my neighborhood raccoons used to like a fair fight. Now, they just rampage through my back garden and don't even give me a look.

Johnson's pain is, of course, all Apple's fault. If only it hadn't started by making a lot of expensive, lovely-looking phones at a time when Android phones were packed with features -- or should I say "features"? -- and wrapped in a look that might have been called Early Container Store.

This -- together with the obsession of lining up outside Apple stores nights before a lauch -- instantly engendered a cultish snootiness that constantly slithered around society like an intestinal worm.

NY billionaire Douglas Durst testifies at brother Robert Durst’s murder trial: ‘He’d like to murder me’

  NY billionaire Douglas Durst testifies at brother Robert Durst’s murder trial: ‘He’d like to murder me’ New York billionaire Douglas Durst made his long-awaited appearance at Robert Durst’s murder trial Monday, dissecting for jurors his tortured relationship with the older brother he claims wishes him dead. “He’d like to murder me,” Douglas Durst, 76, said with startling clarity inside a Los Angeles courtroom.“I hired security today. I have fear that my brother has threatened to kill me, and I have fear that he may have the means to do so,” he said.

You might think, though, that once Android phone makers realized aesthetics and simplicity were things real humans actually like, that Apple types might have resisted the urge to not just think different, but snort superior.

You'd think, too, that once Samsung brilliantly skewered the whole Apple cult at the launch of the Galaxy SII -- 10 years ago -- that the pompous Cupertinian guard might have calmed down a touch.

Tim Cook has certainly not been quite as brazenly confrontational as Steve Jobs. Or, rather, he looks down his nose at the likes of Facebook rather than Samsung. He knows that there are now many fine Android phones in the world and some of their features are so good that Apple will cheerily swipe them.

Yet here we are with tales of Android-baiting woe in 2021.

What might we conclude?

Perhaps that well-crafted brand perception lasts a very long time. As does badly-crafted brand perception.

Yet it's not as if the whole world is like this. Android-scorning, to a considerable extent, is an American phenomenon. We do nasty well here. We can really make it hurt. And only in the US is the iPhone so dominant.

Robert Downey Sr., countercultural filmmaker and father of Robert Downey Jr., dies at 85

  Robert Downey Sr., countercultural filmmaker and father of Robert Downey Jr., dies at 85 The famous father had been battling Parkinson's disease for years."Last night, Dad passed peacefully in his sleep after years of enduring the ravages of Parkinson's," Downey Jr. wrote on Instagram. "He was a true maverick filmmaker, and remained remarkably optimistic throughout... According to my stepmom's calculations, they were happily married for just over 2000 years.

So please, pretentious, inconsiderate, self-regarding, arrogant American iPhone owners, stop upsetting Android owners.

They're sensitive too, you know.
