Mac OS X Anyone who hangs around on websites with information about installing Mac OS X on non-Apple labelled computers has probably already encountered this report, but it's newsworthy anyway. The upcoming release of Mac OS X 10.6.2 will remove support for the Intel Atom line of processors from Mac OS X.

The point you're missing is that it's already been paid for. For a contract (written or click-through) to be binding the terms need to be agreed at the point of the transaction.

With your earlier example of phone service you still have to agree to the contract on-line before they'll send you your phone. In most countries you can 'sign' a contract using click through, it's still legally binding.

However you can't impose terms after sale, unless there was a contract at the point of sale explicitly stating that specific terms might change (like interest rates on a credit card for instance).

Apple are within their rights to impose usage terms on their products, but only if it's in a contract at the point of sale, not after sale.
