In 1997, shortly after Mr. Jobs returned to Apple, the company he helped start in 1976, Dell's founder and chairman, Michael S. Dell, was asked at a technology conference what might be done to fix Apple, then deeply troubled financially.

"What would I do?" Mr. Dell said to an audience of several thousand information technology managers. "I'd shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders." LINK

Today he is asking his workers to take unpaid time off to try to save the company some money. Apple increased the number of folks on its payroll by 48%.
So I don't get this: Launching action against iTunes because you can't put the songs on other media players? Yea? Here's the deal. If you don't think that it is fair, don't buy it. Simple.
