    Why should they have to hack around deliberately placed locks to regain functionality that would otherwise exist by default?

    As an Android user rooting their own phone first, then get back to me.

    Why buy from a company that is hostile towards you?

    Why would I indeed? I wouldn't.

    I buy from Apple because they are VERY friendly toward the nerd in how they build systems and the flexibility I derive from them. They are one of the few companies left that really appreciates quality of design in hardware and software together.

With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
