Apple didnt want to allow another proprietary format. I see no problem with that at all. However they alliwed open standards like mp3 to be used with iPod. Why should they be under any obligation to realplayer
One hand washes the other. The Galaxy Phone only exists to further iPhone, iPad and Mac chip orders from Apple. I've learned to not hate on Samsung so much. I'm just not into their own phones which are basically lab rat phones that people buy. Basically you get beta software and hardware that is ultimately tested for use on a future iPhone.
Apple will shore up the codebase and do some refactoring. We just have to be patient. I would like Apple to launch features when they are ready. Maybe have a 8.1.2 and an 8.1.3 etc on a faster cycle. That way small bugs don't have to wait so long in between to be addressed.
