Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

1. Mac OS X . - The operating system re-invogorated competition in the OS market. Certainly it kicked MS into action.

2 - The Freking iPhone. Apple single handedly bitch-slapped the entire mobile phone industry over night and again re-invogarated competition.

On the pricing of apps on the app store, wasn't it Koi Pond that started this? sold it for 99c (and it doesn't really do anything) and made a fortune. This set the tone for everything that followed. Also showed that apps are very price elastic.
