    “Imagine where they could be if they didn’t arbitrarily exercise such draconian rules over what apps they will allow.”

    They’d have 4 or 5 great Apps that the iPhone carriers would bitch like hell about and increase the data charges over.

    They’d have more Porn than you could shake a dick at.

    They’d have all sorts of imbedded malware trying to steal your money and, last but not least, they’d have 8 or 9 anti-virus apps that would sell quite well.
