[ # ] Digital Rights Nightmare
August 3rd, 2006 under Digital Rights, rengolin, Technology

Apple tried so hard to be like Microsoft that they’re now just like them against Netscape last decade, but now it’s not just a free browser, it’s a legion of big hardware companies (bigger than Apple itself) and they are going to retaliate using the same weapons.

Really hope they kill themselves in the process and rid of us of their stupidity.
