My blogging brother Mike Dunford steps in to save poor old Apple Corporation from me and a few others who consider building corporate ads into an operating system to be evil.
He’s wrong, I’m right, but if you must go read his post and decide for yourself.
You must watch this. You. Simply. Must. Watch. This.
