Apple's DRM philosophy, "training wheels welded on" philosophy, and obscene prices in comparison to other manufacturer's comparable products are the three reasons I've not considered buying Apple products. The "training wheels welded on" philosophy is also why I'm not interested in Windows 8.

Best Regards,

Mike

I find Android excellent as a phone OS, but it doesn't have anything
close to the tablet app "ecosystem" of the iPad.

On the other hand, while I bought an iPad specifically for access to
some unique music apps that are not available on any other platform,
in many fundamental ways the platform is evil. DRM is iOS's first
principle, you can't mount a drive or save a file attachment, there's
no character-level cursor control, etc. Evil.
