I have been warning people for years that Apple doesn't play fair. But still, millions of gullible fools have rushed out to buy an iPhone. After spending way over the odds for their new toys, customers were soon to discover that Apple would slash $200 off the price after only a few months. Then some clever iPhone users discovered ways to “unlock” their phones so that they didn't have to be tied into an expensive, long-term contract with AT&T, only to discover that an update renders the unlocked phones useless.
You would think that the Apple fans would have figured all this out by now, especially after issues with iTunes DRM whereby already-paid-for music had additional restrictions applied after purchase. When are they going to get it into their stupid heads that Apple will do anything they can to fleece their customers?
