    A new study by the Pew Research Center confirms what a lot of people already know, and Steve Jobs haters love to hate on: the media likes to write about Apple. Of 400 different technology-related stories, Pew found, about one in every six of them were about Apple, and most showed the company and its products in a favorable light.
