It is your physical device after you buy it, but it is Apple's concept and their implementation and anyone should do research in to a device before spending money on it.
If a buyer is ignorant of a piece of machinery's capabilities, whose fault is it?
Don't like it. Don't buy it. If you bought it and don't like it, return it. But don't blame Apple for somehow trying to deceive you.
Who said they deceived me? I understand it is my right to not buy the phone but that doesn't make what they are doing right or even ok.
Once I buy the phone I have the right to do with it as I please. They are blocking me from this.
You can't excuse it with tales of concept and implementation. They can put their concept and implementation in it all day, but don't block me from customizing it.
Name 1 other non-Apple product where the manufacturer blocks you from customizing your purchase as you see fit. I am not talking about discouraging you, I am talking about proactively taking steps to outright block you from customizing it.
Only Apple does this and it isn't right I don't care how you spin it. I know some will continue to spin away but all you are arguing is that Apple has the right to block me from using my property as I see fit for the simple reason that they sold it to me.
Ever seen a Ford's radio and engine stop working after putting Toyota Sport Racing tires on it? Would it be acceptable to you if Ford disabled the engine if it detected non-ford wheels on it? Would you excuse this as being their vision and concept?
