I care, and yet I'm not going to modify my behavior. Why? Because this is not a case of Apple doing something wrong. Palm's "syncing" was a hack. A hack even THEY said would probably break. Yet they delivered it anyway...
Apple isn't perfect, but I have yet to find a compelling reason to go elsewhere. Most of what they do is "less bad" than what the competition does.
I mean, what... should I go to linux? Going without the tools I need for my job goes further than "going without some bling". (And no, there are not tools that will work on Linux, trust me, I was a linux user for years before going to Apple. I left because my tool stack was woefully incomplete.)
Maybe go to Windows? Really? Do you want to play the Apple is more evil than MS card?
Sorry for the rant, but your condescending tone paints Apple users as mindless drones, which pisses me off. I am a developer. I've been around the block, this is just where I chose to land.
