the reason these bills are being fought incessantly is because modern consumer capitalism is predicated on brand consumption, not product consumption, and includes concessions to allow for the hedonic treadmill to spin freely. Sure, Apple may be forced to support older architectures that do not support the latest whizbang features but the real argument is that they would have to support the idea that the user owns the device instead of rents it until the next model comes out. being able to repair a cellphone or tablet, or even a macbook for that matter erodes the concept of the brand as an experience and slowly drags apple back to the earthly realm of hardware manufacturer and not a lifestyle. Owning a product, and not a brand in the 21st century is a slow death for any company.

Lets leave it to the dunking tests to determine whether these heathens are true believers of copyright law.
the question isnt when will oracle stop supporting sparc, or when is solaris going to finally die, but what was it that Larry saw at the mega-yacht store that day that was worth the salary of 1800 employees...and does it light up?
Heuristics are bug ridden by definition. If they didn't have bugs, then they'd be algorithms.
