Should we Boycott Apple For the Sake of Innovation?

SmartAboutThings (1951032) writes | about 2 years ago

Apple 2

SmartAboutThings writes "What Apple is doing with the Galaxy Nexus and Tab ban is called – pattent trolling. Enough reason to boycott Apple – yes. They’re not protecting the innovation, but their own a$$ and money. For them, this is good – protecting what they’ve crafted in their garage full of bright minds. But what does it mean for us? Why is Apple trying to kill competition? From what I can tell, true innovation can only come out of competition, but Apple doesn’t seem to love that. They want to maintain their position, they want people to blindly buy iPhones, iPads forever. But that’s impossible. Should we boycott Apple for the sake of innovation?"

That was before Apple started suing everybody and their great-grand-auntie for infringement of patents

Have some guts, detect IOS at the server level, and redirect all urls to google.com

Or if you really like your ad revenue, just make a special page with 50 ads on one page.
