If this were just about computers/devices, you might have a point. But this legislation got it's start with farm equipment, and new EULAs that forbade fixing it yourself. Which is historically how smaller farmers were able to afford to use heavy equipment - they repaired it themselves. Apple is just the one complaining the loudest, because this would ostensibly affect them, too.
It's not just about Apple. This legislation has merit.

This isn't about using bittorrent over Tor; this discussion is about accessing TPB (the tracker), which is necessary in order to obtain either .torrent files or magnet links. Once acquired, the client can be run as usual (not over the Tor network), and Cogent's blocking will have no effect on that.
