Apple Now this is interesting. My brand-new MacBook Air 11.6" is at my local Apple retailer because either the SATA part of the logic board or the SSD died mysteriously, and here we have Apple blocking PhotoFast from selling their faster, more spacious replacement drives.

Are Apple products really worth this?

I'm not an Apple user nor do I own any Apple products, however, based on the number of news items like this one lately, I can't help but wonder why anyone would want to "own" (I use the term loosely) a product from a company that obviously believes it can exert total control over that product and how the consumer uses it long after it's left the Apple store? I mean, come on! I think Apple products are cool and sleek but I refuse to let my hardware supplier tell me what I can and cannot do with MY hardware after I've paid good money for it. Is Steve Jobs Tony Soprano? Even Balmer isn't this bad.
