Are the tables turning?
After a two apple devices and an unmitigated HATE for i-tunes, apple's super ridiculous prices, on top of apples severe overpowering enforcement to negate user 'flexibility of choice and customisation' aka WE CONTROL THIS.. YOU DO IT OUR WAY!!, i'm beginning to recind on my abject avoidance of the stupid tax hard/soft -ware provider.
My reasons are simple... M$ are moving into the niche created by apple, whilst apple moves out. Yet doubly worse because M$ gives up data, removes options of longevity and support, and equally just does what it want's in terms of FORCING consumers. A cloud-based-only anything is not what everyone wants, nor needs, yet forcing new hardware to accomplish it's desires, at users costs, is tantamount to apple. At least Apples business model was clear from the start. ish.
~IF~ apple moves more toward the gap M$ is leaving behind, i shall certainly consider it an option, expensive, but definitely an option/.
