I think many people with a vested interest are taking this opportunity to shout down or badmouth Apple simply because it's a rare opportunity for them to use or cite something to this effect. The man on the street either wont know or won't care about what's going on and Apple will continue to make great products and consumers will continue to lap them up.
I guess it depends whether you consider owning a mobile phone a right or a luxury. Your other option, if you disagree with the policies of all networks, is to not own a phone at all. If enough people care to disagree with the policies, we'll see them leave the networks in droves, and they'll then be forced to alter their terms. However, as is the case with Apple, most people probably don't care that these policies are changing. As such, those who are bothered will...
I don't understand why many people around here are so staunchly against telecom companies maximising their profits wherever possible but tend to be more than happy for Apple to do exactly the same.

Good old iTunes, eh?
Rather ironically, it's Apple and iTunes that have been one of the worst offenders over recent times as far as following the Windows design language
The Zune software has been international for quite some time now. You need it to sync a WP7 phone. It's performance is light years ahead of iTunes. I agree, iTunes is currently the biggest embarrasment for Apple. It's poorly coded, often exhibits poor performance, and doesn't always follow standard Windows behaviour. It's only slightly better than the even bigger embarrasment that's the MobileMe Control Panel (which I was so sick of after nearly a year of being broken...
It's just a link shortening service! Here's the full link for those suspicious types http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200557360
Ooooops, bad call eh?
Oh I know all computer makers charge a fortune to upgrade parts, and that's why Apple's SSDs are equally a rip off. Don't forget UK prices include 20% VAT. There's nothing we can do about the prices short of a revolution to overthrow the government and abolish VAT, but I doubt that'll happen.
