essentially saying that anyone who liked their products was an idiot.



What's wrong with that

The little asides in what is presented as a news article.

"Perhaps Apple's legal team wasted no time in flexing its muscle"

"Apple is known to treat paying customers (who add third party software to iPhone) with hostile firmware updates designed to break the iPhone. "

"If not direct legal trouble it’ll almost certain attract software updates aimed at sabotaging unlicensed Leopard installs."

Hey, you guys don't have a problem with Apple/Apple User bashing, feel free to keep reading. I'm not going to. It's that simple.

How is this bashing? Are these statements false?

So Apple has never had a firmware or other software updates on their products that has caused any of these issues described in the article.

The portrayal of it as intentional and specifically designed to break things, I'd say not, other than stopping the firmware level SIM hacks. Security updates that happened to close security holes that people were using as a vector to install software, well, that makes sense.

Well apple as a company is not very supportive of 3rd party anything and will control and restict. They have their skeptics and rightfully so. It is a valid argument and its not false.

It really is interesting how people are polarized by Apple. I personally think some of their products are nice and dare I say, innovative. However, I am no fanboi and recognize that the iPad is a piece of crap but people will buy it all the same simply because Apple made it.

A lot of fascination around Apple is due to their great marketing/branding. Look at Bose, another company brilliant at marketing their brand to the masses.
