"only expensive if you're always going to toys r us for the overpriced crap that gets lost in 2 days"

False. We almost never buy our three-year-old anything unnecessary. She has plenty of toys, but they were all gifts from relatives. We go to the library a lot.

And now for the killer. We spend $1000/month on daycare/preschool for her. Toys R Us doesn't hold a candle to that.

Yeah, and they're mightily pissed? And then what are they going to do? They're going to go purchase a new Apple computer because the old one's broke. Which is exactly what Apple wants everyone to do -- purchase one of their toys every single year.

The reason they don't want it on DVD is because a physical medium is outside their control. /rant

Are you kidding me? Did they think that customers would want to have their every move logged into their phones? No.

This was by design. It took the collective efforts of some hackers finding out the technical aspects of it; a subsequent public uproar; and a nastygram from a US Senator. This isn't some benign misreading of consumer demand. Apple knew exactly what the hell they were doing.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
