They’re not protecting the innovation, but their own a$$ and money. For them, this is good – protecting what they’ve crafted in their garage full of bright minds. But what does it mean for us? Why is Apple trying to kill competition? From what I can tell, true innovation can only come out of competition, but Apple doesn’t seem to love that. They want to maintain their position, they want people to blindly buy iPhones, iPads forever. But that’s impossible. Should we boycott Apple for the sake of innovation?"
