I was just censored by Apple
My post at Apple ipad forums was just removed. Here's what I said.
"I just don't get why Apple would want us all to visit Amazon to find a book. The only useful search in ibooks is if you already know the title of the book you want. Other than that, you are limited to the 15 books or so in each category. That's ridiculous. Sometimes I simply like to browse. Why doesn't Apple get this? They do the same thing in the ipad app store. You better know what app you want (although there isn't really any other place to learn about them) or you aren't finding it. If Kindle spruces up their ipad app, its sionara ibooks."

I agree. It's this way with apps too at the ipad store and unless the app somehow featured, Hot list or notable, you just can't browse through apps to see what's out there.
There could be a really creative app that I could really use out there but because it's three weeks old and it hasn't sold enough to be in the tops...I will never be able to find this app unless I do a manual search for it.
Does Apple know what Window Shopping is??

Diquish comments aside, I agree that the ability to browse is terribly useful. The absence of that ability is terribly frustrating.
I'm new to the iPhone OS game and had a hard time finding stuff I was actually interested in, but didn't know the precise name.

No, you don't understand why they do that. They don't silence criticism of their product. If they did, they would come here and demand your posts be removed. If they did, they would go after any tech site that posts a negative article.
You really need to stop being so dramatic. It's pathetic.

You just don't get it, do you. Apple sets rules on their forums and you broke them. As a result, they deleted your post. Did your post criticize Apple? Sure. Did Apple remove your post? Yes. Does that make Apple the big, bad corporation you want to believe they are? No.
Get over yourself. Apple cleaned up their board based on their rules. As I said, if Apple were truly silencing criticism, they would do a lot more than remove your post. Sorry you got your feelings hurt by Apple, but you really need to wipe away the tears and move on.
