Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

Is that Steve Jobs and teh Apple Execs are COntrol freaks. This in itself can be Both a good thing and a bad thing. A good thing being More stable HW/SW combo across teh board. Cheaper also when it comes to development since you do have Finite HW to develop for. The Bad, Consumers are strongarmed in what to do, what to buy, how to use it, and at times where and what to use it on. It's also bad on Apple since their business model doesn't alow for integration with Other HW. Oher HW would Boost the SW driven model Skyward, but would have effects on their HW model. But I believe perosnally the effects to be minimal. The Mac fans Are truly loyal for the most part and as a social status would continue to buy Apple Built Products.
