Poor analogy
Authored by: Barney-15 on Jan 12, '06 05:41:16AM

That's just a wrong-headed analogy. I don't use Office as a method to purchase anything. It wasn't designed or marketed as a means to purchase content. If you can find another piece of software that is an interface for buying content, I might find the analogy at least worthy of argument.

Log me as one who doesn't care. If Apple points me to new music that I like, tremendous, because 98.9% of everything I've heard in the last 10 years, I don't like.

You seem to have managed to forget that most users of itunes do not use it as a method to purchase anything, they simply use it to play their existing music and transfer it to their ipods. Many people in fact chose to use itunes, or invest in ipods, well before it was "designed or marketed as a means to purchase content," and yet they've had this spyware version thrust upon them via deceptive patch notes.

Which I would say makes the analogy pretty apt.
