Title : iPhone the junk

I phone was launched yesterday and reviewers got it right, its a junk. I don’t want go into detail why its a junk simply because it isn’t in my interest, but what I can say as a patron of free software is that iPhone curbs your freedom.
When you buy a hardware, you must have the right to run what ever software you want. iPhone does not allow that. You have no choice but to download software from iPhones web portal. Even if you develop a software for iPhone, apple must authenticate it before you can run it on your phone.
This stupid proprietary move by apple will surely be rejected by wise people who know software is. In my view iPhone is digging its own grave.
