This has already made it's way around, but still worth sharing.

<<Let's just say it: Nobody has changed the way we interact with technology like Apple has over the last 10 years. Even if the iPad turns out to be the disaster that many are anticipating, Steve Jobs will still be seen as the hero who turns top-end technology into friendly little gadgets even your grandma can use.

But recently, a faint chorus has been growing--thousands of tech geeks suggesting that if you look under Apple's shiny white veneer, you'll find some practices that are less than user friendly. In fact, some of the things Jobs and Apple are being accused of are so over the top, Lex Luthor would have to take off his hat ... and then use it to cover the dark stain spreading across the front of his pants.>>

Yes, because manifestos invoking make-believe figures (WWLLD – what would Lex Luthor do) make the arguments so much more palatable to morons.

The article is full of cheap shots. Even for those people who believe that you should be scared of Apple, this is not the article that explains why.
