Demanding Apple



Well, I know gadget freaks are a demanding bunch, but I have started to use my Treo 650 more frequently (~conveniently) than my ipod these days, mainly because I don't have to remember to take my ipod.

Will Apple's stringent sense of proprietary technology and DRM shot it in the foot again? In 1984, they had the PC market sewn (sown, even) up but refused to share. Other companies went to the next best thing: IBM's 8086 architecture. Now, in 2005 Apple seem to have the digital media market sewn (sown, even) up. Will they allow their seeds to cross-germinate this time?
