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.

So you must pretty much hate the cell phone industry as they are constantly enforcing their rules and telling us how we can use the device we paid for. You must also hate Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo for making video game consoles that can only play the games they say you can play.

Unlike most fanboys who see the world in black and white, I see shades of grey. I don't have an issue with purchasing commercial software or hardware, or even paying for service. I don't hate any commercial entity. I do have an opinion about all of them. Some are neutral, some flattering and some not so flattering. It is called democracy. And you are entitled to have them, too. I do consider Apple to be VERY unethical for reasons I've listed in my previous posts which you've, obviously, chosen to ignore. Like I said it is a democracy (unless Jobs has it his way). Bottom line is that all corporations adjust their position depending on the mood of the consumers, and Apple will do the same. I think they are starting to feel the heat a little bit and reacting accordingly (giving bumpers for free, relaxing developer agreement). Apple's inherent weakness is that release cycle that they have, does not adhere well with improvement cycle in hardware. They are too long. As for the other issues, well, market will provide plenty lessons for them to learn.

but I am not going to get all angry and make comments about how many more projects I can complete then you and try to make you feel stupid for what you happen to enjoy or how you happen to feel productive.

This part does not deserve a reply as you are completely wrong in assuming that I got angry and dissed a kid. I was merely annoyed a little bit by frequent flaunting of "hey look at my setup..." when there is not much to look at. Virtualization has been around for quite a while now, multibooting even longer. I'm glad for the kid, as he doesn't have to punch cards in order to load his program in a computer as I had to do back in the day, but that doesn't mean I have to share his enthusiasm about not so new technology
