Apple Apple doesn't have a particularly healthy relationship with the press; it has sued websites for publishing information it didn't like, and has tried to keep information under wraps that a journalist tried to uncover via the Freedom of Information Act. Now, however, it has tried to prevent The Times from publishing an article about Steve Jobs.

""Linux 3D GUI" WTF is that? Wobbly windows? That isn't news. The only competitor to MS acting like a spoiled child? That's news.

I want to know what companies are acting like asses, so I can avoid their products.

So in other words you live under a tree - inside a cardboard box might be subjecting yourself to the multibillion dollar cardboard industry.If one avoided products from every company that did something stupid or filled with idiots - I don't think any one here would own a thing.

No, I vote with my wallet. I shop at the local grocery store instead of the bigger chains. I don't buy Sony, and the way Apple is acting, I wouldn't buy from them either. If I have a choice, I buy stuff from places that more reflect how I think things should be done, or that help the local economy. I don't shop at Walmart either.

Perhaps you should come out from under the rock you've been living under, we all have the power to affect the ways companies do things, if we all made our purchases using more criteria than just the best price, companies like Apple, Sony and others might get the message. Sony certainly has been behaving better the last couple of years, since the rootkit scandal.
