is the problem in this case. The device is not without flaws, but it seems unfair to blame the device for a flaw with the app store (I'd criticize it more for not being able to handle naturally occurring dates). The majority of users won't use their player for DRM protected content although they should clearly have the ability to do so without worrying about this scenario. Pathetic doesn't even begin to describe these types of restrictions.

Wrong! I can't believe you actually believe this. If you were given the choice between an identically clocked i7 (even with all but one core turned off) or a Pentium 4, only a complete fool would take the P4. In fact you have it completely backwards since most advances over the last decade are related to extra cores, and improvements in performance per clock.

You can fool all the people all of the time if the advertising is right and the budget is big enough. -- Joseph E. Levine
