Nokia and RIM Respond To Apple's Antenna Claims
I doubt they are jealous of Apple iAnything.
Then I doubt you've seen Apple's profit share of the cellular industry. Last I heard it was 32% for Apple vs 22% for RIM.
Lenovo Trying Face Recognition For Logins On New Laptops
How about requiring the user to depress a preselected sequence of keys with their nose?
HTML5 vs. Flash — the Case For Flash
Don't think for a minute that all these Flash ads won't be replaced by equivalent HTML5 ads.
Flash Support Confirmed For Android 2.2
It is exactly about open standards for the web. What is this HTML5 content tollbooth you're talking about? Open standards give Apple control of the implementation not the content.

High Expectations For Google Android
Your points are valid, but to put your rant in perspective, the iPhone is leading competitors in customer satisfaction by a large margin. Complain all you want, but the iPhone is a groundbreaking device and the best game in town for most people.
