Apple Farm pt.2

Man there is just no end to Apple’s tyranny as iPhone users are once again slapped in the face when Apple forced the developer of the iStat app to remove a very useful “Free Memory” function from their app (from the iStat site):

Where did ‘Free Memory’ go?

iStat’s Free Memory function was removed at Apple’s request.

This decision was completely out of our hands. Please note that all other apps with Free Memory appear to have been removed or updated without their Free Memory function too.

This was not taken lightly—we examined our choices, taking a lot of public feedback on board. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and we do not plan to remove any other features from iStat.

If you choose (and you haven’t already updated), you can continue to run iStat version 1.0. You’ll miss out on new features, but you’ll get to keep the Free Memory feature.

There’s also reports of another app called “FREEMEMORY 1.5” that a lot of users have bought but now Apple has removed from the App store so Apple basically took away something that users have already paid for, without refunding their money! I really hope this type of behavior from Apple will finally knock some sense into all the braindead “me too” iPhone/Apple fans. What really cracks me up is how some of them are bragging about how they are protected from Apple’s BS because their phone is “jail broken”. Don’t they realize that “jail breaking” utilities are written by hackers utilizing big security holes of the iPhone? That’s like buying a computer and being happy that the OS on your system is so unsafe that you are able to download a hacker app to crack it open just so you can finally run the apps you want to run! This is seriously sad and any other company would’ve been bombed if they tried something like this on their users.
