Otherwise the world of the fanboy is unusually silent.
More than one freethinker in the World of Apple has remarked that although at least every third article or post these past few days is about the ARDAgent security hole there are next to no typical fanboy reactions as of yet.

Petulant: moved to or showing sudden impatient irritation esp. over some trifling annoyance.

... and cursing x86 hardware all day long... credentials from the likes of British Aerospace, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, SAAB Defence Systems, IBM, Microsoft, the British Broadcasting Corporation, Barclays Bank, and Sony/Ericsson.
Stuff that in your douche and eat it, fanboy.
