"iPhone runs OS X! Why would we want to run such a sophisticated OS on a mobile device? It's got everything we need. Multitasking, networking, power management, graphics, security, video, graphics, audio core animation... It let us create desktop class applications and networking, not the crippled stuff you find on most phones, these are real desktop applications." -Steve Jobs' transcript from MacWorld 2007 Come on Apple. "Cripple" us with iChat. Until then, I say boycott 1.1.1. Note that I halfheartedly suggested a lawsuit based on the above claims might get Apple to rethink their actions. But the vehement response (and closing of my thread after just one hour) showed two things...the threat of a lawsuit gets people very hot and bothered (kinda the point, so they'll settle and/or address the issue), and that the Apple defenders wouldn't go along. So how about just boycotting 1.1.1? Apple must have an idea of how many iPhones there are, and how many actually upgrade to 1.1.1. If there is a dramatic dropoff, maybe they'd see that as an indicator? I much prefer instant messaging over being able to buy music wirelessly. It would be nice not to have to choose.
