Apple The backlash is starting to show. The most recent change in Apple's iPhone developer agreement isn't going down well. The change is clearly aimed at increasing lock-in, and seems to have little to nothing to do with anything else. While individual developers are hit hard, Adobe as a whole has been hit pretty hard too, giving rise to sentiments on the web that Adobe should abandon Mac development. I have the sneaking suspicion this is exactly what Apple is aiming for.

I really wish 99% of humanity would realize these corporations are outmoded and counterproductive and just switch to FOSS. Apple is evil, Adobe is crap, and Windows is somewhere in between. Evil AND crap.

Going for complete standards compliance, and open standards would go a long way to liberating the populace in the digital age. Google backing Theora may be one of the last relevant things any of these mega-corps do before they are replaced by FOSS.

You're such a realist. I like that.

Now, let us all get in our VW Kombi, go some place nice, take some acid to expand our consciousness, and spread some peace and love while having a really groove time. Oh, and I call shotgun!
