Hear, hear.  Let's face it, if Microsoft had pulled this crap 20 years ago,
we'd all have been up in arms about it but now Apple gets away with it for
some reason.  It's because of Apple's attitude that I use a Android phone, a
Google browser, and (maybe) and Android tablet.  Not that Google isn't
without its faults but at least they don't treat me like an idiot and tell
me it's against their license agreement to install applications I have
written myself on their phones/tablets

I'm able to say that because I don't make my living from writing Apple
software so good luck to all of you that do!
