Disclaimer: I don't like Apple's practices and think they are as bad as Microsoft. I believe they could do this.

My point: I have seen the video and I see no proof. I have a guy I don't know, who is telling me that the files on two sites are the same. How do I know this? What I do know is that his video directs me to his website. I do know that there is nothing like a little scandal to get some traffic to your site.

Has a third party verified his claims? A third party looked at his Flash applets? Anybody see any code within Safari to indicate this is true? Who is to say that there isn't something on his site that he has programmed in to keep the video from playing on Safari?

Again, I dislike Apple but I take this with a grain of salt until someone can verify his claims.

What he should have done is kept his site open on Safari, and challenge people of the community to view the page source and copy it over and host it on their own servers. Myself and many others would be willing to do this to verify if he is actually telling the truth. I wouldn't be surprised if this was just some apple employees on Safari trying to make a point and be morons.

If you want to make a credible argument, do it without wearing a weed-inspired t-shirt...

Oh there is loads of proof. Look up the articles of what Apple is doing over the last couple years. Not good at all.
