Apple has had to invent machining techniques to pull off the unibody design. Other companies are incapable of doing similar stuff.
Maybe its "smooth" not "small" all over again. They were mistranslated. They actually meant 8.6 in, and were talking about the screen size...etc...etc... What I find hilarious is to hear the absolute silence from the Fandroids who couldn't stop talking about Jobs' "selling in volume" a lie, because they were unwilling to accept that the word volume could have more than 1 definition.
Haha... Great disclaimer.
Nonsense. The LGPL's sole reason for existence is that the GPL does not allow dynamic linking, while the LGPL does.
Never underestimate the delusional power of the fandroids.

I think your fears are misplaced. Ask yourself the following questions: 1) Since the "iOSification" of the Mac, has it become less "open", or "more"?

Mac App store has not reduced what you can install by a bit. On the other hand, Apple has gone ahead and included Mac OS Server in the regular Lion install. And if...
In the "open" folks' defense, I think Apple is far too "closed" (whatever that may mean). I think the Walled Garden approach for the iPhone Apps was a great idea when the App Store was released.

So it...
Actually, MS is doing pretty well with the XBox. Although they failed with the Zune, the primary reason was that they were too late, since they wasted time trying the old ways with their PlayForSure initiatives. Still, the Zune continues to benefit them, because its that experience which they based their WP7 UI around. If MS creates its own device on WP7 (which is what the Nokia deal I think might effectively be), they will be very competitive.
Get DTerm from the Mac App Store. Your life will be transformed!
