The Value Of Open Platforms (aka Why I Don’t Own iPhone)

I have recently been in the market for a new smartphone. The iPhone looks like some nice hardware and I’m already an AT&T customer, but after Apple’s trend of pulling Apps from iTunes lately I’m just not buying. Apple has proven to me that I don’t want to live in a closed ecosystem. It made me realize what my real issue with Apple is: their business practices.
