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.

I can't run over someone with my computer and kill them due to faulty maintenance.

Computers aren't cars, deal with it. This is a discussion about apple locking everything down, not about discussing idiotic "straw man" things.

It really has nothing to do with cars. The point is that society sometimes imposes limits on ownership for a greater good. Everyone is for some of these limits to a degree. Total freedom is chaos.
