As far as I've observed, Apple has done a great job of contributing to a number of open source projects and has used their muscle to force the RIAA/MPAA into the digital space.

Is DNSSEC a good thing? (Yes)
Do webmasters need a DNSSEC cert? (No, but it wouldn't be a bad idea. DNS works normally if you do not have one).
Will consumers get 404 redirect pages with DNSSEC? (Not sure here. I'm guessing -- No, because DNSSEC doesn't allow this?)
Will Comcast ever stop sucking? (Probably not.)
