Gloating over the Blackberry

Why in the world would anybody gloat over the current (temporary) technical misfortunes of the Blackberry? For the majority of Blackberry users, their smartphone is a tool of their trade (doctors, scientists, engineers, law enforcement people), which I suspect is not the same as for a major percentage  of the users of most other smartphone brands (fashion accessory/tool-of-trade/bragging-rights) such as the iPhone and Android types. I mean, seriously, does upgrading to the iPhone 4s from the 3Gs increase your worth to society?
Would one gloat over another person's smaller house,  broken-on-the-side-of-the-road car, older outfit?
Is one's world so insignificant  that one has to resort to gloating over a misfortune in order to rise above everyone else?
(for the record, I have an iPhone)
