Cultivating Controversy

There are some vendors that seem to always be embroiled in some sort of controversy, whether it's legal battles, customer complaints, or good old fashioned competitive saber-rattling. For some, it's a part of their corporate identity to seek out conflict and show the rest of the industry who's boss.

Controversy in the tech industry is a large part of what makes it interesting to follow companies. At a deeper level, it provides a glimpse into the corporate images they carefully cultivate over years, even decades. If corporations are people, as some folks believe, it's not surprising that they should, over time, take on certain human personality traits.
