I will continue to petition them via my method of never buying their product.

+1, I am a proud non-apple user for the last 20 years, zero apple product bought. Regrettably my wife bought a iPhone 3gs against my advice. Though she quickly grew to hate the iPhone when compared to my mighty Android phone, and she became jealous of all the cool stuff I could do on my android. Now she owns android phone, and will only buy android phone in the future. Though she still likes her Macbook Air...

My gut tells me that Apple simply has a grudge against Bitcoin. Perhaps they know something we don't. WWJD? Jobs would have owned Bitcoin and probably developed a game system with GPUs and a cooling system that brews coffee.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

It seems that the speculation is that they are gearing up to deliver a mobile payment solution. They are notorious for killing the competition on their platform. Who can blame them really. I'd love them to allow wallet apps more than anyone, as I plan on building a business around a wallet solution. But, I'm not hopeful, so I'm targeting Android first.

The Apple-hate circle-jerk is strong here too!

They are tools; not your identity. Use tools that work for you and stop being goddamn assholes.

I fully agree on your tool analogy. But in this case, the point is that these tools don't work Smiley

If you want a tool analogy let's say you can buy a cheap, rough but robust hammer A, that you can use any time you need a hammer. Or a stylish, expensive, overhyped hammer B for which you first have to petition Hammer Central before you can use it for an innovative new project.

I like my tools to work with me, not against me. Anyhow, good luck with your petition Smiley

Hate me if you like but my next computer will be a Mac.

Seems many round here hate Windows, and you hate Macs too? So you're mostly a bunch of Linux geeks?

Probably explains why so much about bitcoin has that unfinished, not really ready yet feel to it..?

You are free to buy what you like but don't expect any adulation from Bitcoin early adopters. Apple is the epitomy of closed market, walled garden technology. They screw huge percentages from app developers with what amounts to little better than an extortion racket. And if they tell app developers to jump, the only valid response is "how high?".

These things do not sit well with the principles behind Bitcoin. Just saying.

Give Apple a few years and they'll be in decline again, and more willing to compromise to stay in the game. Bitcoin could come in handy for Steam when Valve release the Steambox down the track to make buying content more secure (maybe through Ripple or a similar interface) and less at risk of identity fraud through obtaining credit card details, like what happened with Sony a couple of years back with their PSN network.

Am also looking to develop an app or two down the track as time allows, and will favour Android first over Apple, due to the greater ease and flexibility of being able to put something up on Google Play compared to the App Store.

Maybe a developer at Apple knows how frequently people get goxxxed and just don't want a bunch of retards calling in to tech support

I got my wife an ipad mini. She's happy with it, knowing what iOS can and can't do, and knowing what an android phone can and can't do. She also has an android phone, so the ipad mini is just a tool for her to get on facebook or viber or yahoo or chat or play time management games.

...and you can only use that hammer to drive nails purchased from Hammer Central.  And you can't drive those nails into any piece of wood that isn't purchased from Hammer Central.  And if you try to paint your project with paint purchased anywhere but Hammer Central, it won't stick to the wood.

iPad, iPhone and a Windows 7 Laptop, works for me, never snorted Coke or any other shit ever and with a head like mine, fashion clothes are just a waste of time and money.

Then again, not enough time left to tell you how little I care about your lack of judgement based on whether someone uses an iOS, Android, Qnx or Windows based device.

If how you judge a person is merely based on peripheral devices and labels, then I really feel sorry for you.
