My next Ipod won’t be an Ipod

Via Simon Phipps’ blog I read this article on Boing Boing about Apple arbitrarily limiting their customers’ choice of operating system if they want to have the privilege of using an Ipod.That does it.My Ipod Photo is on the way out – hard drive is unreliable, there’s continual filesystem corruption, iTunes annoys me enough already…. I’m not going to buy another Ipod. I’m not going to buy one for my wife either. We’re going to get something which supports FLAC and Rockbox.Apple: forcing your customers to run a specific operating system just so they can have the privilege of using a consumer article like an Ipod….. bad idea. No more sales of your kit to me. Not just Ipods either.
