    Apple Takes the Word Android Out of iTunes App Description - Apple - Gizmodo

    Why do you think they would do this? The only reason, I think, is because they are noticing the power of google's android. Right now it's itunes, what's next?


    Imagine if google bans the words iphone, ipod, ipad, apple, machintosh, steve jobs, etc., etc., from their search engine!

    This is one of those reasons why I didn't buy an iPhone, Steve Jobs is just crazy, but I'm pretty sure he's just jealous :icon_ banana:

    I think this and other events are a result of a business friendship gone bad.

    Oh the irony.

    How many people remember the famous 1984 ad that introduced the Macintosh?


    Cupertino is looking more like Animal Farm than 1984 these days, though.

    I admire Steve Jobs for many of the things he's done, but this sure isn't one of them.

    Wow. Just...Wow. Really?

    Is it ok to still think Woz is cool since he's not really that involved any more?

    I don't have a link to support it, but my iPhone fanboy friend told me today that apple bought a map company, so no more Google maps eventually, and their default search is going to be Bing!...

    Apple is like the crazy girlfriend that caught her boyfriend cheating. Banning Android from their existence is like the gf throwing out his clothes on the lawn.
