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.

If you only had their absurd attitude problems about the iPhone to go on, you might have trouble getting to five years.

Luckily there's a whole grab bag of crap they have served us to be pointed to and someday corrected. Maybe if they can pivot back away from the course of stupid, I'll be able to stomach buying another Mac laptop or get work to buy another Mac server. Having used three Mac notebooks straight, I'm looking at amd64 books rather than the firewire-stealing, black-mascara adding, no mouse buttons, no function keys, no nmber pad, useless displayport adaptor dongle upsale, card slot missing, DRM laden, slow garbage they are selling now. And my 17" overheats it's GPU and crashes, btw.

If any of y'all annoyed by David's post are still reading for some reason ... the trouble is that Apple is not acting according to its own ethos. David said it right, they must believe they are IBM, BigBrother.

Oh, and they went before the US Congress with a pack of FUD and lies, don't leave that out.

Anyway, g'luck and I'm looking forward to see where you get with this.
