Apple, the evil empire, adds a touch of evil.

Yesterday I bought an Apple iPod Touch. I will return it today.

When it is powered on it does not start up. It shows an image of a USB cable with an arrow pointing to an iTunes icon. It is crippled. When I attach it to my Windows PC an iTunes service agreement appears on my PC. I must agree to continue. I declined.

I bought it to access the web and run Skype. However, Apple will not let me do those things without buying into its insidious all encompassing iTunes world. No thanks.

Plus, where does it say that I must have a PC to use an iPod Touch?

What if my PC runs a non-iTunes OS: Linux, ChromeOS (future), whatever?
