Apple The beauty of the internet is such that every opinion has become worthless; this goes doubly so for those with publish buttons on (relatively, we're humble) major websites. For every opinion, there's a matching counter-opinion, and that's great. Yesterday, we linked to an article by Mark Pilgrim about tinkerers and the iPad, and of course, someone was bound to disagree with that one.

Hmmm I kind remember the title being Apple has declared war on tinkerers, not will declare war in the future.

I don't see why people should be upset with this anymore than with a game console. It isn't making standard computers disappear.

What I see are a bunch of people that are upset that Apple isn't catering to them. Too bad.

Apple has never been about tinkering anyways. They don't even want you replacing the hard drive on the iMAC. They expect you to lug the thing down to the genius bar. This is what happens when you buy Apple, nothing new.
