Apple "Apple CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software - Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple's advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple's upcoming cloud services offering." Right-o.

If Apple intends to exercise the same kind of control on the user data as they show control over the apps, don't be amazed if your data will be deleted for not agreeing to Apples (ever changing) rules ...

A company, that has shown so little respect for what a user wants to do with the devices he owns, should not be trusted with my data!

How about us early Mac adopters that established @mac.com email addresses. Three years later you had to pay $99 a year or you lost your email address. And that's when they were desperate for customers. Now that they are large and in charge, there is no saying how users can get burned.

I am always attracted to buy Apple products, but somehow in the end I end up buying PC stuff.

I guess I still manage to resist to distortion field effect Apple products have.

I have seen many companies already doing that. Why only does Apple become an evil company? If you don't like it, don't use it. iDoubt I would use it either even though iLike my Mac and iPod Touch much.

But yet I want to see the keynote before doing any judgement on its usefulness or anything..

That's the difference. Windows and Linux users don't have love affairs with their PCs, neither do they make sex with their hardware. It takes an Apple loverboy to do that.
