I've been watch Steve Jobs for nearly 2 decades and he is a proven animal when
it comes to ramming propeitary closed standards down his user bases throughts
and then overcharging for the priveledge. The Quick Time Patent issues alone
and nearly 15 years of closed propertary hardware which they happily sued to
keep as closed as possible are a tribute to Jobs greed.
Jobs woke up on a monday morning and found religion? That is a complete crock
of shit. Steve Jobs can have his guillible minions. His monopolist tendencies
make gates look like a free trading Free Markets guru.
