That is what I dislike about Apple right now. It would not be fair for the govt to change the rules after the fact, but Apple did just this.

Apple changed the rules on iPhone/iPad developers after the fact, by banning apps not weren't made using Apple's development software. If they came out right away and said 'you must use our dev tools' that is one thing, but changing the rules after the fact is pulling the rug out from underneath developers.

Well that is called a legal contract. If the developers in question dislike or disagree with all the terms of the contract they just have to not sign it.

They can't change the rule, that clause was in the contract. Again, that falls in the "not well informed" category.

Difference is... if the government was all over MS for being unethical then m1dget would be yelling it from the rooftops. If they investigate Apple then it's obviously because the government doesn't know anything or perhaps they are just unethical.

I doubt it. He doesn't seem to be especially good at convincing people to believe things that aren't true.

Yes....BUT you are assuming he is trying to sell everyone a apple "used car"....maybe he is playing a deeper game and is really trying to sell everyone a MS car! In which case....he's awfully damn good at his job! :)~

Tell me m1dget, when are you going to drink the Kool-aid?

It's sad that most legitimate apple users I know, and I know at least half a dozen dedicated ones, are not only die hard fan boys but now CULT MEMBERS.

Could you please explain how Apple is a good company, or any better than Microsoft?

It's simple. Microsoft makes more money than Apple, and therefore they are evil.
