This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

The founding fathers of this country would blow their own brains out if they were alive today to see what has become of their country--the country they fought so hard for to win their freedom, and ensure freedom to all citizens under their government.

Unless you were... a slave?
Overall, don't kid yourself, it was always largely a story for good children, myths even - we have a decent idea about early history of the US, already fraught with corruption and profiteering (like pretty much everywhere else of course).
Founding fathers were primarily large owners, getting rid of one ~tax burden for them.

I would like to see Apple go the way of Steve Jobs... to hell.
