What all this looks like outside the US
If you really want to know: from this side of the pond, just like kindergarten kids squabbling over pettiness that could be resolved by acting in a more grown up way, by, for example, actually getting together and sitting down and actually listening to each other instead of running off to teacher and even then admitting they're not going to abide by teacher's ruling if it doesn't agree with their point of view.

It's just like the attitude I observe of most of the amateurs that share my workspace (as a professional driver the roads are my workspace, and apparently it is easier to reverse my 40 foot bus than their 14 foot car): they are not willing to ease off and must be first through a gap regardless of the fact that this not only delays themselves but everyone else as they block the road whilst the other driver is also not willing to reverse. (One evening on the way home this happened so I stopped back from the selfish idiots indicating to pull out to let the driver going my way to reverse and let the blockage clear; whilst waiting another driver went passed me to join the blockage. I gave up waiting turned round, went another way to the other side of the blockage and 3 minutes later I passed the other side of the same blockage - they were still stuck because they were unwilling to stop, think and back down: unfortunately in this case Apple is acting like that one driver who could easily back down and let the other three drivers going the other way through, but their ego wouldn't let them.)
