"No. Bullshit. The profit is minimal."
So How do propose i use my Apple TV's?
As you said, the profit is bullshit and there is no tie. The apple TV can only stream from ITUNES, and only play "apple approved" file formats. Further, there is no storage on the device itself (ATV2) so it must either connect to Apple's servers or a desktop running ITUNES, but yeah, there is no "lock in" right?
One of the big difference between Apple and Samsung is one proudly states "designed in California, made in china" while the other doesn't.
"Yes. Apple doesn't scan your files like Google does." - You have a citation on this?
"It's the parent fault. Not Apple's."
Yeah, and that is why Apple settled right? Who rated the games as suitable for kids but yet they need real $$$? Why do the games always try to abstract the fact you are spending money? One one hand apple fans love to talk about the pro's of the "walled garden" but not its failings?
PS. I'm not a "fandroid".
I actually have several Apple products (MacPro, AppleTV's, IPODs).
