Yeah Apple way to go! Being green should be the number one thing that matters when it comes to devices.

Screw the government. As a consumer I would wonder why it is that Apple is making it so much more difficult for consumers to have their products repaired or to replace a battery themselves?

I like having a PC because I can upgrade it myself. I like Android because I can root, customize or repair something brokwn myself. I like my iPad because of the games and it was free. I would never buy one even though I enjoy games on it.

I have already given up on Apple being a cool tech company.

1) Mean to their employment except for the few top guys running the company. Only makes incremental update to their products and charge an arm and an leg for it.

2) Copy good designs from their competitors and at the same time attack them using patent law suits.

3) Repent the above making Trillion of Dollars while giving little to nothing back...

It's getting increasingly harder to defend them as time goes on.
