Apple Griefs

I was asked to quantify my griefs with Apple....

*Photo app banned for allowing widgets & multitasking

*Google "apple cease and desist" & see what pops up: currently, there's a story about a 9-year-old submitting ideas to Apple; a C&D from 1-2010 regarding offering a bounty to photograph the iPad; something from 2000 regarding comments on a website before a keynote address; a C&D from 2006 asking some podcasting company to stop calling their program "myPodder" (its still available)...

There seems to be a good analysis of this trend from back in 2005.

*OSx86: the idea that its unwelcome and "illegal" to run OSX on a non-Mac, Intel platform / can run Windows not withstanding, is rather absurd.

*Apple ban of non-Apple compilers for its platform.

Vertical integration anyone?
