At best, to take a position as you have, is silly.

You should have read the rest of my posts. They are there. The do exist. They can be taken advantage of. I did also say that I understand it's still in beta. Right now, they can be accessed wirelessly. I'm not claiming the sky is falling. I was pointing out an issue for discussion. Denying the issue does not make it go away.

I'd say you should look at the code. You can listen to the press release if you really want. The "media" is there for a reason. In my experience it's very rarely used for facts.

There are many people who think this way (or at least WANT to think this way), and thus precludes them from every comprehending that Apple is no different from Google, Facebook, or Microsoft under the surface. Once you get this big and this successful, the mafia comes in and shakes you down for everything you've got, and won't allow you to continue unless you play ball. And by mafia I of course mean government.

 

They were compromised years ago, I'm sure.

 

 

Yes, I'm hearing that people automatically equate "big" with negative things like "evil", "fat cat", "not innovative" etc. Size does not necessarily relate with evilness. I personally know of small businesses that are, well, downright stupid and evil. And we've seen Apple continue to innovate and change the game long after they have surpassed much smaller evil companies. 

 

Your comment on government - as long as you live in a democratic nation - you can't blame your government for... much. You can only blame its citizens (of whom we are) for not taking the time to stay informed or to educate others into supporting the right people.

If you're speaking about the U.S., it is by no means a Democratic Nation. That's a fact.

As for paying, Apple has had a lobbying budget for years. They're paying someone. That's a fact.

I almost have to wonder if the whole e-book issue is related to a certain person telling another one that they were destined for a one term office stay. That's me going out on a limb.
