Apple’s Monopolistic Practices

Up to recently, I was neutral as far as Apple was concerned. I’ve always been a Windows user, some Apple fanboys always irritated me (Windows fanboys are the same though), but I had nothing against the company itself. Since the success with the iPhone, things have changed.

In the last 2 days alone, I read the following two articles about Apple and how they treat their developers and users. To sum it up: you can’t choose the technology you’ll work with, you can’t choose the features you’ll add and now, you can’t even choose the tools you’ll use for your development. Next time you hear about Microsoft or another software company being sued in Europe, think about them. As for me, I’ll continue to create software with a company who respects and takes care of its developers.

    I know right. I was horrified when I saw this, always trying to control everything… I personally do not own an Apple product (apart from a golf t-shirt I received as a promotional item) and I heard they tend to break a lot anyway. The company’s attitude towards the developers out there just tops it off, because let’s face it: Apple wouldn’t be where it is right now if it weren’t for them.
