Casting Out Devils

Speaking Conservative Truth to Evil-Doers

Apple-MacIntosh Is Evil, says Tech Guy

with one comment

On his radio show, March 6, 2010, while discussing new cell phones competing with the Apple iPhone, Leo Laporte, “The Tech Guy,” called Apple Computer evil:

“Apple no longer rules the roost, and that’s why Apple’s going into court, because they don’t like that! They want to be the one and only.

“. . . . Apple has increasingly turned monopolistic, it’s turned into a company that is locking things down, that keeps the user from choices. Their point of view is, ‘We know best. . . .’

“. . . .

“. . . I think there’s maybe something happens in the business cycle of tech companies that they just, that they start competing in the legal realm instead of in the realm of innovation. . . . I’m very disheartened that Apple has decided to sue instead of out-innovate HTC. I think that that’s the the wrong tack.

“I’m very disappointed that Apple has locked down its phone to keep independent developers from doing — you know, Apple has started to ban now applications for all kinds of crazy reasons. . . . . . . they started banning apps that competed with Apple, and I think that that’s what you DON’T want. You want a phone that lets you do what you want.

“It’s OUR hardware. I hate it when companies start to say, ‘No-no, it’s OUR hardware, we’re just letting you use it.’ No-no, sorry, I BOUGHT the phone. I paid a lot of money for an iPhone. That’s MY hardware, and it’s not Apple’s choice. . . .

“Apple is of the opinion, and I’m just waiting for them to go after somebody, that it’s illegal to “jailbreak” a phone. In fact, they tried to get the federal government to make it illegal to jailbreak a phone. They failed here, but they petitioned the FCC saying, ‘You know, when an iPhone is “jailbroken,” ‘the terrorists win.’ They actually said that. . . .”
