With respect, I think this is exactly what so many of us are complaining
about: it feels like Apple is treating its customer base (one of the most
loyal, trusting and eager teams of unpaid proselytizers for any company in
the world) like cash-cows.

I'm really glad my MagLite wasn't manufactured and sold with the same
mentality. Ditto my non-Apple portable CD player and my non-Apple
cell-phones ... :)
