Apple, What Are You Doing?!

4 April, 2009 | Posted by Marvyn

Steve Jobs and Co. are once again ripping off the consumer. The latest version of the iPod Shuffle requires that 3rd party headphones use a proprietary chip in order to communicate with the device. Apple charges a license fee to the 3rd party and in turn pass on the extra cost to the consumer. Really Apple? I use to enjoy their products until recent where now it seems they are in it for the extra buck more than anything.

Add to that they released details about the upcoming iPhone OS 3.0, which finally has MMS and cut & paste features. Why only now? To keep up with the Palm Pre. (slated to release this summer—Yay competition) Mr. Jobs said that MMS was not needed when the iPhone has such an intuitive email interface. What made you change your position Steve? Is the Pre the new heir apparent? Now it seems that Apple is chasing down Palm rather than the other way around. I need to trademark “Palm Pre Killer” before it becomes the new buzz word.
