I can appreciate that argument on purely capitalistic terms, and I recognize that Apple's in business to make money. But on the other hand, when it comes to sacrificing utility for an artificial boost in profits, that doesn't seem Apple's way. Sure, they make good money, but it seems mostly from delivering utility, not from hampering it. And besides, given the trend in relative market share, my prediction and yours may be very much in synch after all.
