This sort of sums up the current arrogant attitude of Apple. The company that branded itself through their think different campaign has more and more become the company of do it our way because we know best.
Clearly this business model continues to be successful for them, but increasing one can hear grumbling from their the power users and creative types who aren't in the market for an Internet appliance, but who actually try to do work with their machines. Unfortunately these users are increasingly being seen by Apple as unimportant niche markets that they will no longer cater too.
What we'll do at that point isn't clear, since the alternatives such as Windows and Linux are unsatisfactory. So I suppose we'll just put up with the abusive relationship.

I remember having one of these as a young child. Astronaut Snoopy came with a removable spacesuit (which I did), helmet and life support pack. One of the many space race toys created in the 60's. I have no idea what happened to him.

|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
|SeaWorld of Pain|
This is exactly what makes The Daily Show brilliant. Pointing out the hypocrisy in the world. PETA has always been inconsistent about the treatment of wild vs. domestic animals. Typically focusing on domestic over the wild world.

We're currently using oil at a rate not seen since the middle 90's, yet the prices are heading up. That isn't a free market. Its estimated that on average Americans paid an extra $600 per year during the last speculation bubble.
