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.

Wow, really OSNews?

Disclaimer -- I am an Apple fan. I love their products, and they all work well for me. Yes, I have dabbled with Windows, Linux, AmigaOS etc, but for one reason or another I use OS X and my iPhone on a daily basis, and I have no problems with any of their hardware or software.

Having said that, I am already tired of the Apple bashing that OSNews dishes out every few days or so. What you editors don't seem to understand is that if you don't like it -- don't buy it. It's one thing to report on tech news, and it's another to provide your opinion (and heavily negative at that). Hey, it's ok to provide an opinion, but when your bias seeps into what you call "news" on this site, then you're going to lose me as a reader.

Which is a real shame, because I've been reading this site almost every day for the past 5 years or so, and a member for 4. If you're just going to bitch and moan about Just Another Freaking Company, for 1984 days no less, then all of the sudden I won't be interested in this site anymore.

Even your reminiscing was negative! Sheesh!

Funny how the tables have turned somewhat -- people on here saying that if you don't like what you see, vote with your feet. I'm doing exactly that for OSnews.

Ta ta! I won't let the door hit me on the way out, I promise.

Well this is exactly what I predicted in my above comment. People leave.

By the way, still waiting on the entry for day 2.
