Apple Way back in 2005, only a few months after I joined the OSNews team, I interviewed Wim Schermer, founder and then-owner of the largest chain of Apple "Premium Reseller" stores in The Netherlands, MacSupport (now iCentre). In fact, Wim Schermer was the first Dutchman to buy a Macintosh - the original Macintosh, that is - in The Netherlands, and went on to start his Apple reseller business in 1988. While the interview covered many aspects, one thing always stuck with me: Schermer was concerned about what would happen to his business if Apple were to open an official Apple Store in The Netherlands. Seven years later, his concerns are becoming reality.

I guess by that you mean "I'm aware I support a dishonest practice."

Apple used to make powerful tools for the creative, it now makes toys for the (well-off) masses.


In my language, "dishonest practice" used to mean same-sex attracting practices, and "creative" was rather close.

By the way, does OsNews censorship certain words? >-(?
