Legal A few days ago, technology blog Valleywag's launched its Apple Tablet Scavenger Hunt, a sort-of contest in which people with evidence of the existence of Apple's much-rumoured tablet could win large sums of money. Apple apparently wasn't amused, as the company resorted to its usual tactic whenever it doesn't like something in the press: litigation, litigation, litigation.

Read the letter, stupid

Once again I am stunned by the rocket scientists on OSnews. I followed the /. link and read the cease and desist letter.

1. It's the friendliest c&d letter I ever saw
2. They're absolutely right
3. The law is the law

For whatever reason a (vocal) segment of the internet community loves to hate Apple. No one is holding a gun to anyone's head to go buy any Apple product. What exactly is so compelling about the way Apple protects their product that it turned into such a circus?

I don't really get the vehement anti-Apple sentiment. I guess hating Apple is cool like hating Microsoft used to be cool. Whatever, they both make product I either want or I don't. The rest smells like envy.

Don't like the way Apple protects their brand? Don't buy their product. Just quit crying about it.
