    This is true about Aussie Law. But seriously why is Apple even bothering to contest it?

    it would be understandable if the company were also in the music industry, but its a supermarket chain with a logo of an apple that is quite different than Apple's

    They're certainly too big for OUR good.

    I find it really hard to believe that such a low number of people jailbreak the iPhone (10% on the highest of surveys) considering being able to jailbreak is the only reason I ever bought one. It's still the only Apple product I own, because there's nothing more I despise than being one of the many. I want customization, bottom line, and I can't even change my homescreen wallpaper without jailbreaking this phone. "Think Different"? The lies begin right on their logo.

    I would think the more that Apple fights software, fights VoIP, fights jailbreaking, the more they're just directly fighting their customers. I don't know why you people take it but I won't, and never have. The day OSX will run on anything I want to throw it on, namely my existing (and badass) PC hardware, I'll give it a go. Until then, f- off with the rules on what I can use my hardware for. Also f- off with the rules on what I can use your software on. The more you loosen up, the more customers you'll gain, which is why MS is as big as it is. They may not do everything right, but the LAST thing they'll do is restrict you from doing what you want.

    reanimationxp, sir, I fully agree with everything you said. This need for complete and utter control of everything is a clinical disease, an obsession.

    I still find it ultimately ironic, though, how thier 1984 commercial essentially preached against being conformist, with little or no sense of individuality, imposed by a central overload, when that is exactly waht they have become.

    If Apple today was the same one we saw in 1984, I would think they would be pushing many of the customizations and addons that we can only obtain via jail breaking, rather than pushing any restriction they see fit.
