Removing it from the App Store is basically equivalent to that.Would you not say that Apple block pornography from their platform, or politically controversial content?Yes, yes, you can get to it via Safari or other web-centric apps, but the web isn't Apple's platform, and using web apps offers less power, speed and integration, so it's a less convenient solution, as was the main thrust of my point.
Massive influence perhaps, but not a great or particularly innovative band, just popular, with a handful of decent songs, a lot of middling ones, and some singalong tunes for children.

The value in a stock buy back is not in short terms gains; that was never the argument. Buying back stock increases proportional ownership of each outstanding share, which means value is realised in future earnings growth. Carl was always betting long term in Apple, which few of the decriers seemed to realise.A little disappointing that he's dropping the action off of a (relatively) small commitment from Apple, though hopefully Apple will continue on the same track.
