Apple The beauty of the internet is such that every opinion has become worthless; this goes doubly so for those with publish buttons on (relatively, we're humble) major websites. For every opinion, there's a matching counter-opinion, and that's great. Yesterday, we linked to an article by Mark Pilgrim about tinkerers and the iPad, and of course, someone was bound to disagree with that one.

All well and good, but they're not really idealists-- they are reactionaries. The direction that Apple is moving is a welcome change after nearly two decades of stagnation in personal computing. It's a new computing model and just because Apple's version of it is closed doesn't mean that being closed is inherent to the model.

In other words, if you don't like what Apple is doing, then show us something else.

what the hell are you talking about?
how is the iPad different ? you've never seen a tablet pc before? Cause they've been around for 10 years, mind you. All there is, is an Apple marketing head on top of it. That's no new computing model. Neither is making it entierely DRM controlled and closed.
Have you seen the anti-intel TPM video? that's the same story, except they don't even need to cover it under the claims of greater security anymore.

Heck, its even using a 3 years old OS and apps.

Such people as you, which are called sheeps, are the reason for most things going wrong in this world. Time to get off your eye protections and look around.
