Mac OS X Well, this is a surprise. Several websites have a preview up of Apple's next Mac OS X release - it's called Mountain Lion, and continues the trend of bringing over functionality from iOS to Mac OS X. Lots of cool stuff in here we've all seen before on iPhones and iPads, including one very, very controversial feature: Gatekeeper. Starting with Mac OS X 10.8, Apple's desktop operating system will be restricted to Mac App Store and Apple-signed applications by default (with an opt-out switch), following in Windows 8's footsteps.

Influence != rights. I do recognize this as a technicality, but rights cannot be removed or granted, they simply exist (and anybody who talks about artificial "rights" is blowing smoke). _Certain_ corporations may have more influence than others (money talks, in all forms), but not all corporations have the same level of influence as others, and not all corporations have more influence than individuals.

Wrong, as I said, they where given the rights of a person as defined by their twisting of the 14th amendment. Thus a corporation has all of the legal rights of a human + all the legal rights of a company with none of the restrictions that would normally apply.

Thus they have more rights then you do exacerbated by the fact that they have enough money to now essentially do whatever they like.
