I don't "own" my devices, do you even hear what you`re saying? I don`t see anywhere anyhow apple could do anything to stop me from doing whatever I want from my devices, any more than microsoft or google would.
Just because I`m a scientist doesn`t mean I know jack sh*t? Society begs to differ, that`s why they pay me to generate more knowledge. Let alone about computers? Not necessarily, except I work specifically with computers.
Sorry man, but your apple hate is keeping you from some great devices. As I said before, the minute someone comes up with something better I`ll move from apple. Right now, and just right now, they have the best stuff around.

No one cares if your an apple fanboy/fangirl or whatever. As long as you enjoy the product you bought. I DO care, because of dollar democracy. Companies want money, so it makes sense to follow the examples of those that are making money.
This video alone made a comment about Apple being considered the largest technology company in the world. Clearly they make money, because people are buying their products.
Now, if they're making money, what`s stopping the other companies that want to make money from following their example?
See where it all goes wrong here? Apple`s business model starts spreading around like a disease, because apparently it works, and suddenly you can`t get a decent computer for a decent price anymore. It`s all over-priced crap with a specially beveled logo.
Thank the Geek Gods companies like Google are around to counter Apple`s example.

Okay well this whole conversation is just stupid. First off. Having flash on your mobile device does not drain battery unless you are viewing something that uses flash and or playing a flash based game. Second. I have owned a lot of brands of laptops as well. And while the macs worked well. They did not do what i needed them too. Third. Android based phones are closing in on ios based phones very quickly.And my last thing to point out. Apple has continually tried to make it illegal to modify/jailbreak the devices and has been denied in court every time, the verdict is always that people can do what they want with the products they buy unless it causes harm or is stealing a paid service. I have nothing against apple products. Steve jobs did amazing things for technology. So why cant you children just like the crap you like and shut up. No one cares if your an apple fanboy/fangirl or whatever. As long as you enjoy the product you bought.
