Comedians had a lot of fun with the outrage last night. But there is a valid issue at hand (even if the general public might not have it nailed down to the finer details). +Chris Hardwick had a fair point - rather than sign a petition, just don't buy it.

Also, advise others not to buy it. Apple's proprietary, locked down work hurts us all with the number of customers they currently have.

Giving money to Apple is funding the end of open computing.
