Apple I've been meaning to write this for some time, and for all the time I delayed the more poignant the point I wanted to make started to become as new news came out further solidifying my angle. When I begun writing this article the iPad had not yet been revealed, iPhone OS 4 was not on the map and Apple had not yet purchased Lala. You've probably just noticed that all of these events in fact point toward Apple embracing the web more and in this article I will point out why this is not the case because I believe Apple's agenda here is similar to something we've already seen in recent history.

People act as if Google is some super friendly open source company! It's not, it's open to an extent because it's in it's business interests. If they start to lose money in their ad business they will do whatever they need to in order to preserve their business. That is business. No different then Oracle, Microsoft, IBM, Novell, Apple, Facebook etc! The goal of a business, Esp a public company is to make profits almost anyway legally possible. If that means lock in then they will lock you in with a kung Fu grip! Lol!

Personally lock in does not bother me if I get good products. I hated MS lock in because MS products sucked so bad for so long. Same with Oracle.

Apple needs to do some work also, I am liking Googles products at this point!
