Someone named Marco does a nice job of pointing out the short comings in my “Case Against Apple.”
The funny/sad part of the debate so far has been the technology folks who are actually arguing for *less* choice in the name of ease of use/customer support. The fact is, allowing certain folks to easily/officially/legally jailbreak/unlock their phones is something Apple could do easily. Same with opening up iTunes or the App Store. Apple could easily make users flip a warning or two—like folks do on routers—when users optin to doing something a little more “hacky.”
