2 Minutes of Hate

What's raising investors' ire this week? What's ruffling Wall Street's and Main Street's feathers? Dayana Yochim and Alison Southwick unleash a two-ish-minute smackdown on Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) backlash (it's hot-spot makers Novatel Wireless and Sierra Wireless (Nasdaq: SWIR  ) that deserve to be hopping mad), retailers ticking off coupon clippers (watch out, Kroger (NYSE: KR  ) and Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  ) customers), and a tasty (not) new brew from Molson Coors Brewing (NYSE: TAP  ) .

These are the companies that are ruffling investor's feathers right now, and that's never a good sign. Notably absent from our list is The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012. Our top pick for this year is an emerging market retailer that has us all smiles. You can uncover this pick today by clicking here.

    Hate the name "The New iPad." What happens with iPad 4, "The Newer iPad?"

    Or does iPad 4 become "The New iPad" and the iPad 3 become "The Old IPad?" Or how about "The Newest iPad" or "The Newer-er iPad?

    I guess on Apple's computer side of things, they've decided to stick to the regular names (MacBook Pro, Mac Pro, iMac, MacBook Air, Mac Mini) and add parentheses with Month and Year to clarify which model it is.

    At least this is better than all the different variants of Droid on the Android side of things (Droid Razr Maxx 4GLTE by Motorola is a mouthful)
