    Crazy...



    From his explanation:
    "I have bought all three generations of iPhones on launch day, but I cannot take it any longer.

    In the end, it was rejection of Google Voice from the App Store that drove me to this point, but that was just the tip of the spear. Whether it is their refusal to let other gadgets such as the Palm Pre interface with iTunes, or their Draconian App Store procedures...I simply cannot support them with a clear conscience, which is why I chose to end the life of my iPhone in this manner instead of selling it--after all, who would want to pass on a cancer to another person?

    Apple may have fooled the world with their witty commercials and bright t-shirts, but they will no longer fool me. Their approach has helped them gain a sizable chunk of the PC market, but as their popularity grows, people will begin to see them for what they really are--a corporation far more "evil" than Microsoft would ever dream to be.

    Apple is turning consumerism into communism. Any entity that enforces such anti-competitive practices and dictates what their paying population can and cannot have without any explanation, consistency, or reason is communistic. It's wrong and I will no longer support it.

    for some reason this reminded me of the guy who put the video of him taking a sledge hammer to a PS3 or XBox 360(can't remember which one) when it first launched and everyone was going nuts for it.

    Well, perhaps they will charge him, but Apple will fix it. I had one that looked almost that bad and Apple fixed it.

    Perhaps you miss the point. The issue is not whether or not he can use the app but that some other SOB made, and is in the position to make, arbitrary decisions about whether or not he can use it.

    I would hardly say Apple has turned consumerism into communism, actually, I would argue the exact opposite, they are becoming tyrants.

    Yeah it remind me of that to. But to waste an expensive device, not to mention buring it which cant be good for the environment.

    Every communist government in history was either initiated by a tyrant leader or fell into the hands of one.
