Hello

Well since I stirred up this entire situation I might as well try to fix it.

I only allow one choice because the poll can be manipulated so you vote for all or vote for one and also vote the "No" option.

I suggest all of you also give a reason why you voted :)

The companies are from this list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_largest_technology_companies As you can see they are in that order as well. I believe I can edit the poll so if someone wants a company to be added (tech related only) Ill add it.

I encourage Scorpus to make his followup article based on this :)

Also, lets keep the flamewars out of here.....

I voted for "no." I find it pointless to hate a company. If I don't like what they offer, I don't buy from them. It's simple.

Same. Though to be fair to OP, I think his original thread title had the word "hate" changed to "dislike". And having owned a Dell computer, I thoroughly dislike everything about that company and would definitely steer away potential customers where possible.

Yes, the original article on the frontpage stated "hate". Dislike, although still negative, is a way better word.

Voted no. I may not agree with the way these companies always do things but without them there would be less competition and we wouldn't be where we are today in advancement of technology.

I dislike certain business practices (Apple), but do I dislike a company? No.

Would I buy their hardware still? If it suited my needs, yes.

As someone who doesn't own stock in any tech-related companies, I fail to see why I should be swayed by anything other than my own need. OK, maybe if I morally objected to something enough, then there's a possibility. But I don't.

I don't hate. I do dislike practices, products, policies or something else about many companies. In some cases it may be so much that I dislike the entire company and no product or action will make me change my mind because of past experiences. I do or don't use them - that depends on alternatives.

I believe I can hate or dislike what I please, if I'm not a crying, name calling assh* about it.

I didn't even bother to vote. I may dislike certain company's policies/practices, yet like their products. I also have the opposite opinion on several companies in that their products lack yet their policies/practices exceed.

Second, if I nit-picked, I would have more than one company in mind and your polling only allows a single selection.

I dislike the behaviour of some tech companies - Microsoft, Apple, Intel and Google have all abused their position the market to some degree - and I may at times be very critical of a particular company but I don't usually dislike companies as a whole.

I dislike companies, but hate is a strong word. Would I buy from a company I do not like?...only if I really need to but with so many different options out there, I can find what I need elsewhere. Why there is competition and choice.

Of course we all "dislike" certain companies, their business practices are usually why, pricing also factors in, but in all reality it's only a company, maybe two that deserve what they get, the rest is pure fanboyism

Yes, Microsoft, Google, Apple for promoting closed ecosystems and invading privacy; and a special mention of Yahoo! for the Chinese dissident issue a few years ago. But I do like some of their products on their own merits.

You missed out an "Other" option, as I do dislike one company, but they're not on the list: Monster.

I dislike Samsung because of the way they work. They're a chaotic company with a vision that changes with every product introduction.

I'm also starting to dislike Microsoft. The last few years it looked like they were moving to extremely solid, well thought-out products that were very good in almost every way (Windows 7, Office 2010, ...) but I really don't like the way they're going now and it's causing me to want to have as little as possible to do with them. But since there are no good alternatives I'm not ditching Windows 7 and Office 2010. But no more Microsoft online services for me, aside Skype.

Can't really hate a company, I can hate a product through bad experience or not agree with business practice. As long as the company does not affect me negatively I have no reason for hate.

at the moment I think MS and the whole Metro thing ugly and weird but that's just my opinion. I don't like it so I just wont buy it.

Nope. However if you want to add RamBus and SCO to that list I'll change my vote.

Sadly I couldn't figure it so that if you vote "No" everything else is disabled so I had to do it like this.

I picked the top ten technology companies. I missed Cisco, Asus, etc but the poll would be too huge.

I dislike apple for being so draconian with their mobile devices in regards to.

1. Music transferring
2. Photo sharing
3. File exploring ( You can use a smartphone as portable USB, how come blackberry, winpho 8 and android can)

I HATE all other brands, samsung, HTC, sony for not being able to keep up in terms of audio quality with apple... they are focusing too much on Megapixels.

I completely agree. Apple has never been for audio quality.
