I'm sure this has been brought up a million times before, but I just can't help asking again: Is Apple selling its soul for its current prosperity? I'm wondering that as I just had to implement a hack to disable to iTMS arrows in iTunes 8. I find it sadly unsurprising that Apple forced commercialism into the user's space like this... I don't think the Apple of a few years ago would have done so. It just seems like a slimy move. Obviously, the neglect of its computer lines also shows that Apple is not its innovative self. The iMac has not changed form in years. Even more true for its notebooks. Not to mention that it has apparently given up on iPods and is content to ride its momentum through the next year. And on top of that, its flagship, the iPhone, is only accessible to a small fraction of U.S. customers using AT&T, and only if they pay exhorbitant access fees. Also, the treatment of iPod Touch customers as second-class citizens is obnoxious. iPhone users got the 2.0 software for free, yet they charge Touch users $10?? It's the same software for the same operating system! Am I just being a big whiner? Or does anyone else think Apple is losing its way? Maybe mainstream customers would freak if Apple made another revolutionary computer like the iMac G3, and that's why they are keeping things the same. That would be a heavy price to pay for success.
