Editorial I think I'd like to start an internet movement. Due to Apple's recent actions regarding the Google Voice app, I intend to criticize Apple every day at OSNews for 1984 days, or until they perform a very subtle and simple act of contrition. I'd like to enlist the help of every tech journalist, blogger, twitterer, Facebook denizen, and person who ever talks to another person. I'm that girl in the running shorts with the hammer, people! I'm throwing the hammer at the big creepy guy on the screen! We don't have to be slaves anymore! Read on for the full manifesto.

For the love of Pete I am OSNews - challenged today. I can't do anything right.

If you read my byline at the bottom I admit that the 1,984 number is just a gag. But I'm committed to at least a couple of months, especially if I can get other sites to go along. Really.

Well then otherwise I think it's a pretty neat idea. It would be a quite a sight if the entire tech journalism community came together and got big-bad-Apple to apologize. Keep us updated on how the other news outlets that you've contacted respond to your proposal.

But, please, if it turns out that no one else will come on board, don't make the readers of this site suffer.

David Adams : I reject your reality and substitute my own. So NO. No thank you. You have extremely narrow vision and have alienated everyone outside of the US.

(edit to clarify whose reality I reject.. LOL, sorry i3X171UM, could have been misconceived as yours - which I reserve the right to reject too, but at this moment accept.)

So you're only behind the idea if other people do the work? Way to stand behind your convictions.

I've been boycotting Sony since Lik-Sang closed down, though I've hardly mentioned it to anyone else. Their open source stuff might have me reconsider though.
