Where is going Apple ?

Its amazing how typical it is to react to rejection this way...  The girl everyone wants says "no" and all of a sudden she is called "ugly, fat and stupid".  Yogi Berra (spelling?) quote: "Nobody eats there anymore, its too crowded".  I don't agree with a lot of apple's decisions, but the real travesty is that no other companies seem to be able to offer any products even remotely as compelling. I don't see abstinence as a choice.  People go on hunger strikes as a reaction to the lack of choice.  How long ago did hypercard come out?  Thirty five years ago?  And nothing of merit since?  What kind of user-empowering tech would it take to do for people now what hypercard did for people then?

...or they could open another store, iPass, for everyone who is too
disgusted by their policies to buy the hardware...

As none of us can see into the workings of either Steve Jobs' mind, or 
the corporate mind
of Apple, it seems that everything that is stated re the recent 
"cafuffle" is opinion
beyond restating what has already been stated.

Rubbishing Apple won't help one bit; it is what it is; one can either 
choose to live
with the thing, or not.

The fact that RunRev (et al) has felt that Jobs' ruling is a kick in the 
pants is an opinion;
until Steve Jobs pops over and physically kicks the RunRev people it it 
a feeling; however
unpleasant it may feel.

Many years ago I was working on a farm (mucking out beeves); and turned 
up every day
at 5 am to get on with my work. One day the farmer told me he didn't 
want me to work
for him any more. I asked him why; and he said that he didn't feel a 
need to tell me.

So I went home, feeling dejected, unloved, and so on.

The next day I walked about 30 miles round lots of other farms, and by 
sundown
had got a new job; felt wanted and loved.

2 weeks later the farmer who dismissed me went bust. Poor chap; he is 
now a raving alcoholic
who props up the local bar.

So; until every farmer tells me he doesn't want my labour I will keep on 
smiling.
