Do you have a study or statistics to support your claim? Sounds more like an ignorant anecdote. In my news browsing I see plenty of stories negative to Democrats.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Please list some of the things you would like to do but can't because you are not free. I can't think of any.
If your statement were true then Germany, Norway, Belgium, and lots of other countries would be police states. If you want to argue for smaller government you're doing it wrong.
Suspending the first... amendment? This didn't happen in the USA.
That results in the poor paying proportionately more taxes than anyone else since they use almost all of their money to purchase necessities.
Anyone hear of anything similar being considered in other states?
You should really educate yourself. Your facts are incorrect. You've obviously never worked with what we're discussing here. Calling others names doesn't make them wrong and you right.
Wrong again. You only pay that to upload to the store.
Considering that the store is the only way to install any software in iOS
More lies. This is why I usually avoid these conversations online. The store is NOT the only way to install software. I can create anything on my desktop and upload it to my phone. I can take any app a friend makes and upload it to my phone. Apple is not involved in any way and it is not jailbroken. Please stop with the ridiculous misinformation.
Us Apple shills? I don't give a shit about Apple. I just don't like the lies you're spreading. An OS that lets me install anything on my own and use all of its APIs it not locked down. Sorry to disappoint.
No I called you a troll because you brought Apple into the discussion specifically to start an argument. What MS is doing here is not at all what Apple does.
I didn't say open source. I said open, as in all APIs built in are available for use. iOS and OS X are not locked down or restricted in any way (other than iOS apps needing to be signed).
This is still not accurate. Apple does not restrict the capabilities of iOS for 3rd parties. They restrict what they sell via their store. But you can install anything you want on the device and use whatever APIs are available.
Stop trolling. The Apple desktop is a completely open Unix OS. I develop on it all day long and never run into any restrictions like this.
Even orthodox Jews don't take all the stories in the bible as literal. They study them as lessons to learn. Devout religious belief is about much more than taking the religion's documents literally.
