Subject: re: "How HP invented the market for iPod resellers" Article

You're quite stupid.

1. The iPod has less DRM than anything a Wintel company could come up with for an MP3 player.

2. Being partnered with the most innovative, successful ( in this day and age of floundering monolithic PC companies - read: Dell, Gateway, et al... ) is one of the most brilliant moves a Wintel based corporation could have done.

It's extremely forward-thinking and ballsy on the part of HP to have partnered with Apple.

You'll see...

You, like most Wintel-centric minded people, don't give anything having to do with Apple a halfway decent chance...

You're ready at the helm to poo-poo anything that the little company that could tries to do to get itself a little more marketshare. - You simply and unequivocally do not relent in this regard.

You can't give Apple credit for innovating, and you simply won't allow it more market share ( as per your article... It quite unabashedly reaks of the same old anti-Apple sentiment that permeates the most of Tech articles and the minds of most tech "reporters" like you... )

It would have been just too unbelievably unbearable for you to give cheers just once to Apple, right? You saw too many articles actually giving Kudos to Apple, and said "hmmm, how could I badmouth Apple today? - It's just getting WAY too much positive feedback for once... Uh-uh - mustn't let THAT happen..."

Time and time again, you "naysayers" when it comes to Apple have been proven wrong. This will be no exception.

And with this e-mail, we have proof of the paranoia that runs so deep through Apple users' minds. Who knew that our iBook could willingly produce such an anti-Apple story? Does Steve Jobs know about this? ®
