"Are we all becoming fanboys? If you broaden the term...................
...................beyond those who favour Apple products".
Err.. as far as I can recall the term "fanboi" or "fanboy" referred to any and all who were
psychopathically obsessed with excessively keen on something. It has only been relatively recently that I have seen the word used to specifically refer to the keenest amongst Apple's customers. There are "fanboys" everywhere - you only have to look at any thread involving a product from one of the majors and you will see plenty of examples of slanging matches between the various denominations. "Fanboi is as fanboi does" if I may be permitted to paraphrase my dear old gran in this context.
