Apple "[Ninjawords] is a terrific app - pretty much exactly what I've always wanted in an iPhone dictionary, and, yes, with both a better user experience and better dictionary content than the other low-cost dictionaries in the App Store. But Ninjawords for iPhone suffers one humiliating flaw: it omits all the words deemed "objectionable" by Apple's App Store reviewers, despite the fact that Ninjawords carries a 17+ rating. Apple censored an English dictionary. A dictionary. A reference book. For words contained in all reasonable dictionaries. For words contained in dictionaries that are used every day in elementary school libraries and classrooms."

I could say that is becoming a bad joke, if:

a) It would have been at least for a second funny

b) I knew it is a joke.

None of the above statements are true, so I ask myself why in teh universe are people still putting up with Apple?

Did they escape MS just to find a new , more sadistic master?

The iPhone ecosystem is the evil one. OS X and Macintosh computer and peripherals (other than the iPhone), are ok, if you like the OS.

Lucky for me, you don't need (yet) and iPhone to use a Macintosh computer, and if you do have/use an iPhone, you really don't need to buy stupid apps all day. It's a *very* comfortable phone to use on a daily basis , very easy to find contacts, send msgs, etc.

Mine is an old Gen1 iPhone, which has been Jailbroken since day one (I live in Europe, so a friend brought it to me in the States and sent it). When this phone breaks apart (and it's almost there) I might buy a 3g and Jailbreak it again, I like to use the iPhone as a phone and couldn't care less about apps. But that's just me.
