i pick the smiley based on the image not the shortcode i have enabled for them which are of course a mess.what i meant was that buying an apple iphone does not make you a slave of apple. you make a concious decision to take that route and you live with it.
how is buying a car different from buying an apple smartphone? you have to buy spares from the company. you have to get your car serviced at that company's service station. you are restricted to what they are offering you and so on? (most cars today come with electronic system that is better serviced by the company's own service station). do i become a slave of that company? android is flexible. fine. but apple iphone is not different from tons of other products we buy on a regular basis.
i think yes we do......become slave . we get trapped just like this on a regular basis[video=youtube;PRo4rg07_gg]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRo4rg07_gg&feature=fvwberel[/video] i think you should know the kind of chemicals put in the fast food by most famous fast food chains are addictive .so that you come again and eat more and more often
i guess you should stop using all proprietary products in that case. because all of them are closed in nature and do not offer the flexibility of open source. you do not want to be a slave of your stock trading software right?
