Legal Five US carriers, nearly identical devices, millions and millions of pre-orders, virtually simultaneous launch - and that's just the US. The Galaxy SIII might be hideous, Samsung is still doing something right here. No surprise, then, that Apple has, once again, decided to compete in the court room instead of on the shelves: they're asking for a US import ban on the SIII [FOSS Patents link].

kwan_e,

Well, it still seems disingenuous to me to say "we believe in choice" when it was convenient and then turn around and kill customer choice.

As for the yes-men, I don't think they caused apple to eliminate choice (though they are certainly enablers). It's not like they would stop praising apple if apple chose to continue the mantra of "choice is good". In fact I think life would be a hell of a lot easier for fanboys if they didn't have to defend apple's attacks on consumer freedoms.
