I think it's more an example of "What comes around goes aroud"

A good friend of mine has a little plaque on her desk. It reads:

Quote
I suggest you keep all your words soft, sweet, and wholesome.
(Because you're about to eat them.)

It's good advice.

(Hey Steve! You reading this?) 8)

I have nothing good to say about Apple. They've got it coming. They're just mean people.

And yet their users are proud to take the abuse. Stockholm Syndrome, anyone?  ;D

Anticompetitive industry bully? They've always been anti-competitive. It's just in recent years they've gotten big enough to be a bully. I long for the days when Jobs was a voice of insignificance in the tech world.
