Time Warner and NBC told Apple to shove it, they are sticking with Flash and have no plans to change that. Looks like a good chunk of programming (NBC, Hulu, TBS, CW, CNN, TNT, TCM, Cartoon, etc etc) is never coming to the iTouch Senior Citizen Edition.
First, if you're going to call his headline misleading, you're being equally misleading. That content will make it to their devices be it iTunes store or an app.

Secondly, I wouldn't be calling anything NBC does a good business move. They've consistently proved they can't handle it. As for Time Warner, they're making a retarded bet. Hell, the only reason they're wanting Flash is the one of the very reasons piracy is rampant: DRM. Flash provides them with built in DRM and commercial encoding.

In regards to the article.. I agree that MS is crap.. I just don't see why he would compare MS and Apple... compare HP and Apple or Dell and Apple... those are more appropriate comparisons.
They are compared because one just surpassed the other in market cap. If Microsoft would wise up and build every unit like they did their 360 unit, they'd be in much better shape.

Also, I'm curious as to the "overwhelming facts" that dwarf the defense of their touch products.

Apple was my first computer.. I would love to see them dominate the industry the RIGHT way.. instead of this closed market, elitist bullshit.

The wrong Steve is leading Apple at the moment.
I'd agree but you cannot deny the polish their system has produced. I love apple and I love Google. That's why I'm really liking this competition. In fact, the only company I loathe that's been of discussion recently is Adobe because most of their system is closed and a lot is in bad shape.

Lead UI developer for Palm just jumped to Android... Palm's biggest strength was the UI... something that Android has been weak on (causing Motorola, HTC and others to develop their own UI overlay)

This is gonna be huge for Android 2.3 and beyond.
This is pretty big but I wouldn't say Android has been weak on it. Hell, HTC's Sense UI is horrendous. It also doesn't upgrade fast enough so users can't keep up with Android versions without ditching Sense.
