Apple "I think that Apple could be just as strong and good and be open, but how can you challenge it when a company is making that much money?", Wozniak told a crowd in Sydney, according to ITNews. They'd score so many brownie points the internet would explode.

damage the brand image


Really. So if i buy a Ford, customize it to my liking and then it doesn't work properly that hurts Ford brand image? That's the idea here? Only in the IT industry could such amazingly stupid reasoning exist.
What I do with something after it is purchased is *my goddamn business*, no-one else's, and if I f--k up that's my problem. This works in every other industry, there's no rational reason for it not to work in IT.

There is, but it doesn't seem you're very interested to know why so I won't bother to explain.

I'd be interesting to hear what the reason is.
If you modify the device you void your warranty, nothing else needs to happen. It doesn't tarnish anyone's brand or some such nonsense. Please note that I don't count what moronic managers *think* will happen as a rational reason.
