Apple: A Bigger Open Source Enemy Than Microsoft?
,----[ Quote ]
| But I remain perplexed by the mentality that Apple, by virtue of being a
| perceived underdog (at least on the desktop market), is somehow on ‘our side’
| despite being no different than Microsoft in most regards. Maybe I’m just
| too much of a freetard (to borrow the eloquent language of Fake Steve Jobs),
| but I find this reality hard to deny.
| It’s also worth observing that, as the computing industry continues to move
| towards high-powered mobile devices, in which Apple is heavily invested, a
| more direct confrontation between Linux and the Mac world seems inevitable.
| The days of ignorantly blissful coexistence may be numbered.

Ipod doomed says Wozniak

| As far as the fanboys are concerned, Woz speaks heresy when he compares the
| Iphone SDK limitations to Google's Android.
| He said that punters were not getting all they want when companies are
| proprietary and lock their products down. He said he would like to write some
| more powerful apps for the Iphone than you're allowed.
