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.

But one can turn back the odomiter or remove teh converter if they want. They are fully within there rights to invalidate there car's road certification.

Mind you, both of these have very real safety implications that can result in loss of life. The imposed limitations on computers through draconian EULA and such have little to do with safety of the operator or others. If I loosen the steering on my computer, my mouse will be wobbly but I'm not going to be wrapping my computer around a tree and three pedestrians am I?

Rational limitations imposed to protect public safety; worth considering.

Use limitations imposed to protect unimaginative business models; BS.

You also continue to blindly believe that opening one's Xbox will lead directly to piracy. Gosh, surely nothing to do with good parenting or ethics involved; it's purely because little johnny could open his Xbox without criminal charges.
