I love apple, im on my 3rd mac, 5th iPod. However they are ever finding ways of replacing perfectly good ways of doing things with more expensive options. Take the universal dock the original one with the circular IR sensor it had s video out put and composite output through the headphone jack (the yellow plug that goes into the TV right?) however with the latest one it has no s video, you cant output through the headphone jack. Instead you have to pay £36 to buy there video cable. Also with the new macbook pro's they don't provide adapters for video out such as DVI to VGA instead we are forced to pay £21 for the Mini Display-port to VGA adapter. £21 for an Adapter crazy! Also not including the apple remote anymore thats another thing that has gone from the mac. I find it amazing how apple is controlling the consumers and 3rd party developers into doing it there own way, or also making new technology stating it will be the next industry standard and then charging over the roof for it! Take ADC that never took of and worse to use your own VGA monitor you had to buy a crazily adapter! The point i'm making is this isn't the apple that it used to be. In 2007 when i got my first macbook apple wasn't locking down the user to all there "industry standards" sure there was mini DVI on the macbook which meant i had to use an adapter to output DVI or VGA which they should have included but at least it was still a DVI out put. With Display-port they are able to control what shows up on our screens "The Mini DisplayPort specification includes HDCP copy protection, allowing DRM-enabled content providers, including the iTunes Store, to disable playback on any external displays that are not HDCP compliant." (quote from wikipedia about Display-port). Now is this the music and video industry forcing apple to do so, such as DRM protected content which i find outrageous meaning I cant play MY TV SHOWS which I BOUGHT on MY PS3. Forcing me to either buy an Apple TV or a mac to go by my tv yet more expense. In conclusion all I can say is that sometimes things change for worse not better I also don't see things changing anytime soon, unless us the consumer does something about it.
