Hate is a negative energy and negativity just doesn't get you anywhere. Attempting to punch harder when you imagine the person you hate on the object doesn't make you punch harder because you're thinking about the person and not the punch.

Make sure to do it in the right order. Be successful and hated isn't a bad thing. Be a bum and hated is simply pathetic with no money to show for it.

Haters are better than fans, as fans are likely to buy a product and use it without talking about it, where as a hater will take every opportunity to talk about the product/corporation and that generates publicity, and if my reading of the world is correct, then negative publicity is better than no publicity.

Speaking specifically about Apple hate, most of it is directed at the perceived users rather than the products themselves, another facet of the hate comes from Apples advertising campaigns, for example "Dare to be different", are you different if you own an Apple product when statistically you know at least one person that owns apple products? Apple products are marketed to the 14-30 demographic, specifically to people that AREN'T technologically inclined/knowledgeable in addition to being the "model look of a hipster" or someone that the previous generation would call a yuppie.

People that look below the branding and advertising generally don't have much to complain about in relation to an Apple product, as their technology is newer than some other stuff on the market, but what it really comes down to is mob/group mentality, other (it's never specified who) people say "hate Apple" and I want to fit into this crowd so I better hate Apple too, and that's exactly what these marketing campaigns want.
