Then don't buy into the hegemony. Stick it to the man. Say no to the tyranny of
the vested interests. Take your dollars, or euros, or whatevers and put them
into your pockets and say "NO, I WON'T GIVE MY AFTER TAX EARNINGS TO YOU! TAKE
YOUR SHINY BAUBLES AND BE GONE! I don't want your iPhone iPod Zune Latitude xbox
vista wii newton gti cooper sentra mx3 f150 .........I like my life and I don't
need more stuff."

For everyone else, have a great day.

On the other hand, I don't tend to see Apple poaching business from their
partners. They provide the products and services that they see fit and support
those who figure that they can carve out a niche.

If there is so much money being sucked out of customers that it is causing such
consternation, it sounds like an opportunity, not a problem.
