Well, I guess you're right about your beefs, for I share em, too. You pay a high price for Apple, but it's worth it for the most part, despite the stifling, protecting turf, financial-delineation to discrete segments, heavy-handedness, closedness/non-openness/proprietaryness, etc, it's mostly worth the admission price when you consider the alternatives.

Except for MobileMe - That appears to be a POS smile
