Bull.  Clearly you've never dealt with Apple and their online app and 
media store.  They're FAR worse at strangling the market than IBM, 
Microsoft and Oracle combined.  But hey, they're marketing says 
otherwise.  Oh, unless you're Australian and call them out for the lies. 
  Or have an obvious idea that apple's patent lawyers have steamrolled 
through the PTO.
