Vendor Lock-in is Universally bad...

Even when that vendor is Apple. I have always believed that Apple is an important player in the computing echosystem and that a heathy Apple is a good thing. Apple tends to make good stuff, but they are still #1 on my list of tech companies most adept at shooting themselves in the foot. One day I'll publish that list... This article titled :Editorial: Having Bitten the Forbidden Fruit, it Bit Me Back. Six Times. povides another first person account of lock-in badness.

Great Quote: [...] that Benjamin Franklin might have written were he in my shoes - “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little wireless connectivity and neat-o eye candy deserves neither liberty nor other yummy goodness.”
