"...You just won't listen, will you? Apple locks up its platforms because they think (1) integration yields a much better user experience and (2) innovation is faster when one company is in the drivers seat, as opposed to a 1000 different companies...But apple's way is better for apple's customers. If you don't like apple's way, choose a different product."
Look guys, I have no problem with you bashing my arguments (or me) - fire away - but let's try and refrain from nonsense comments. Anyone who understands the word Microsoft understands why innovation is not 'faster when one company is in the drivers seat'.
