Editorial I think I'd like to start an internet movement. Due to Apple's recent actions regarding the Google Voice app, I intend to criticize Apple every day at OSNews for 1984 days, or until they perform a very subtle and simple act of contrition. I'd like to enlist the help of every tech journalist, blogger, twitterer, Facebook denizen, and person who ever talks to another person. I'm that girl in the running shorts with the hammer, people! I'm throwing the hammer at the big creepy guy on the screen! We don't have to be slaves anymore! Read on for the full manifesto.

Apple needs to pay a price for coddling AT&T, and they definitely need to suffer some fallout for all the other crap they've pulled with the App Store.

Coddling AT&T, eh? So, it's only their deals in the U.S that you give a rat's behind about, huh? How very... American (in the worst possible way).
So, Apple does some things we don't like, such as the bs with the app store. I'm no fan of that, nor some of their controlling practices. But Microsoft does a lot of things none of us like (EEE, artificial hardware limitations for netbooks, Zune DRM... anyone?). Yet, on this site, all I ever see is Microsoft praise. Funny, that, and it makes me wonder why...
Deliberately tossing complaints around is not the kind of journalism I'd like to see take the tech world by storm. Look how much good it hasn't done in other fields. This is completely counterproductive, and osnews should not become a venue for your personal agenda now that so many rely on it for news about, well, operating systems. By all means, put whatever complaints you want on your personal blog... but do not turn a news site into such a blog.
