Two quick issues mentioned here in my 5 second Google search:
DoJ to examine Apple's iTunes business practices | TG Daily

The US department of Justice might not agree with you, no matter how you spin it. Seems they were trying to prevent music companies from allowing Amazon to offer first day deals for exclusive releases.

They also mention the Flash debacle, which already had a whole thread where we bitched about it.

Edit: Criticism of Apple Inc. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Above is a good Wiki link that has lots of great links to sources to demonstrate that Apple can certainly be described as acting unethical.

Apple may face anti-trust investigation | TG Daily

Epic lulz. Talk about being misinformed and borderline retarded (not you... read the article)


And wow... I just read the whole critism of Apple and that is one funny article. They have one perfect and legal business model and people not intelligent enough to sit down and understand it complain uselessly about it being, well, what it is. (keeping in mind that it's perfect and legal )


That was entertaining. Thanks for the link man


edit: insults not aimed towards you... mostly to retards who actually wrote all of those articles

After all th threads I've discussed of Apple and BSD in general and it's the only thing you have to say about me?

I'm impressed.

The Dept of Justice and European trade organizations will decide if Apple has a "one perfect and legal business model." If it didn't smell bad I doubt that they would go after them in the first place, but time will tell.

You can't change the governement.

They have one of the most irrationnal way of thinking and it's never going to change. You couldn't possibly sit them all down and explain them exactly why they are wrong because the governement simply can't be wrong of course.

Does not matter if you like the government or not, they make the rules and they decide of Apple is "legal" or not.

What would not be fair would be if the government changed the rules on Apple mid-game, and made their practices illegal. This would affect their business model negatively, which would be unfair IMO.

Do you agree?

Sure I agree. Though even if they make the rule it doesn't mean that in depth they are right.

Again, like most of the population, they just don't know squat about what they are really talking about and just plow through whatever breaks their small net of perfectly crafted illusions of good and bad, the society itself and how we should think.

If any of the above can be remotely affected, they go berserk on whoever poses a threat to their system and of course ideas falling out of their ideal of conformity is a direct threat to them and their control over people.
