And people are worried about Google and Microsoft.
Meanwhile, I'll be having some fun on my open source Operating System, playing with some open source games that were totally free instead of being a sucker for Apple fanboi products^W^W^W^W^W^W^W^Wnot saving money so I can keep paying for my college education and worrying about what our Master, Steve Jobs, thinks of what I should be allowed to run on my machine.

I had no clue that it would be anywhere near as popular as the iPhone, let alone more
popular... I can’t believe a million people found it useful already.
it's a succes because Apple actually tapped into a new market... not for superusers, gamers, computer savvy people, but plain jane data consumers, people who maybe have a pc and now use perhaps 10% of its capabilities, like browsing, chatting, vids, that sort of thing. you know, the type that mistook ReadWriteWeb for Facebook.
It's more a success because they removed just about every possibly "advanced" feature and made it so it only did a few things.
Sure, it may be really easy to use, but it is only good for trivial use. I'd rather use a laptop or even a netbook instead, it'd be far cheaper with a lot more capabilities...and dictator Jobs can't tell me what the hell I can and can't do.
